"Israeli Drones Scare Hamas

Herald Tribune

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)

Palestinians know when an Israeli drone is in the air: Cell phones stop working, TV reception falters and they can hear a distant buzzing.

They also know what's likely to come next a devastating explosion on the ground.

Israeli officials refuse to comment on whether their pilotless planes are used in airstrikes, but Palestinians say the drones have been a major weapon in Israel's latest offensive in Gaza that has killed nearly 120 people since last week.

Israel is at the forefront of drone technology that is increasingly being used in hotspots around the world.

Drones provide a deadly and cost effective alternative for armies to target enemies, without risking their own pilots' lives while reducing civilian casualties in heavily populated areas.

Gotta love those drones. Must suck to be Hamas. They hide amongst women and children to shoot their rockets at Israel, then bingo, a pilotless planes snubs em. Don't get me wrong, I feel for the innocents who have died, but that is what happens when a terrorist group is so cowardly to use their own for human shields. IDF has counted only 20 civilians out of 120 dead. The Palestinians say otherwise naturally.

Ah Hamas, the darlings of the media and leftist can do no wrong. Their hearts are heavy because of the fallen "innocent" men, women and children. They took pictures of the same baby 20 yes 20 times in different poses to show everyone the so called brutality of IDF.

And if everyone still wasn't convinced they drug up old pictures to remind everyone how awful Israel and who supports her is. An "emotional picture" below the fold of a miracle. A Quran survived the bombing. Their dramatics sicken me.
