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.
Hamas paraded yesterday a “captured, rebuilt Israeli tank”. FYI, tanks aren’t made of wood and don’t run on wheels. pic.twitter.com/cP1e8KFjAJ
