Hamas recently released a picture that purportedly showed their soldiers standing in front of a tank they had assembled from captured Israeli parts.

A Hamas spokesperson called the reassembled vehicle a “powerful trump card,” according to the Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit.

Ofir Gendelman, the spokesperson for the officer of the Israeli Prime Minister, posted a picture that showed the tank was running on car wheels, not tank treads, and said it looked like it was made of wood.
