Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian Islamist group active in Gaza, posted a video clip on the Internet over the weekend boasting of a new development in their efforts to produce military hardware that could threaten Israel – a light plane.

The video clip, which was produced by the Al-Quds Brigades, the organization’s military wing, represents the first time that the group has announced that it is working toward building its own capacity for warfare.

Islamic Jihad has traditionally used social media to post images and video clips of fallen Israeli drones.

During Operation Protective Edge, Hamas, the Islamist movement in charge of the Gaza Strip, deployed unmanned aerial vehicles against Israel. It also recently bragged about coming into possession of an Israeli drone that it says has been put into operation.

The images in the Islamic Jihad clip show operatives training to develop and activate the light plane, which is designed to “overcome the difficulty” of carrying out attacks against Israeli targets by land and at sea.
