Hamas releases new video showing training of its elite forces‏.

A new propaganda video released Saturday by Hamas’s armed wing, Izzadin Kassam, showed a supposed "elite unit" training for a confrontation with the IDF.

The video features Hamas fighters, their faces blurred out, storming would-be IDF posts in what appears to be an urban warfare training site somewhat reminiscent, yet much more basic, than the IDF urban warfare centers used to train troops for complex operations in highly populated areas.
