Hamas drone shot down over Ashdod was laden with explosives
A Hamas drone that the IDF shot down over Ashdod
earlier this morning was laden with explosives
An enemy Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), apparently laden with
explosives, was shot down by the IDF near the port city of Ashdod Monday
The interception caused a strong explosion to rock Ashdod and the air raid sirens went off, at around 6:30 a.m..
The Navy is reportedly looking for remains of the UAV.
The IDF Spokesman said that the UAV was shot down by a Patriot missile and that it fell in an open space along the Ashdod beach.
Mordechai Weisman, a resident of the Beit Shemesh area, told Arutz Sheva that the
downing of the UAV "was accompanied by a very loud and long jet-like
rumbling sound" that could be heard dozens of kilometers away.
“I just saw and heard massive column of smoke rising from Tel Aviv / coastal area,” he told Arutz Sheva's Tamar
Yonah. “It sounded as loud as a large jet engine even from here near
Beit Shemesh. Like nothing we've seen before. Looking at the photo, I
would say it is coming from the Ashdod area. And just for the record, it
was really scary watching and listening to that. The image does not at
all do it justice...”
The only thing that Hamas wants to do more than have Israel kill 'Palestinian' civilians is to kill Jews. It's time to destroy Hamas.
