The usual tactic of lining up human shields around their murder weapons isnt working for Hamas this time, so the gang decided to get all high-tech and launch a drone at Israel. In fact, there might have been two of them, and Hamas says they have more. From CBS News:
Israels military said it downed a drone along its southern coastline on Monday, the first time it encountered such a weapon since its campaign against the Gaza Strip militants began last week.
The drone came from Gaza and was shot down near the southern city of Ashdod, the military said. It did not say what the drone was carrying.
Hamas tweeted Monday that it had deployed a number of pilotless drones into Israel, adding that, Our drones carried out specific reconnaissance missions over the War Ministry in Tel Aviv.
Israeli TV was reporting there could have been at least a second drone fired toward the Jewish state.

Where did the bearded savages get the drone from?
Probably from Iran, but, more importantly, what can that drone do beside flying over Israel?
release deadly gases..
Anyone know if a Patriot anti-missile missile would be used against a drone?
The Patriots were originally anti aircraft missiles, and during the Gulf War were pressed into anti-missile service by means of new software. So it is hardly a surprise that one could take a drone down.
Shoot! I was hoping they used a less expensive and lower tech solution that I could use on the home front.
Anti drone drones?
Actually I think I read an account of a drone getting knocked down by... get this... folks hurling their shoes at it.
I see in the picture that accompanies the article that the two observation towers are still standing. Get busy, Israel.
The “Bush” Drone! (or was it the “Hillary” drone?) Regardless, perhaps if I walk around with a large mirror on my head.
