The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Sunday that it believes Hamas terrorists have developed cruise missile capabilities with help from Tehran.
In a press release that was obtained by the Times of Israel, the Israeli military said that it found evidence of the advanced capabilities during a raid in the Daraj and Tuffah neighborhoods of Gaza City.
“[The IDF found] components proving terrorists of the Hamas terror organization studied under Iranian guidance how to operate and build precision components and strategic weapons,” the IDF said in a statement.
On X, the IDF posted a video of an Israeli soldier going through a cache of weapons and gear while speaking Hebrew.
