Apparently Hamas Unaware that Stingers Don't Fire on Friendly Aircraft

Muqata has the entire story with the proper links.

If I get the story right, Hamas smuggled some Stinger anti-aircraft missiles into Gaza.

Here comes the evil Zionist helicopter. Ready. Aim. Fire. Dud. Nothing happens. Stingers are programmed to identify Apache helicopters as friendly and not to fire on them.

Seems kind of hard to believe. Where did Hamas get the Singers in the first place? If leftover from Afghanistan, wouldn't they be pretty much obsolete and out of order any way?

But, if the story pans out and Hamas did get its hands on Stingers, kudos to Raytheon for this much needed safeguard. And to Hamas for being predictably retarded.
