Hamas Claims to Have Built a Tank, Logic Contradicts Them

Hamas embarrassed itself after presenting a vehicle it claimed to be a tank made from scavenged and captured parts of Israeli equipment.

What’s the embarrassment, you ask? Simple answer. To qualify as a tank, a vehicle must have functional tracks instead of wheels. The Hamas creation has fake tracks, which don't even touch the ground, and it features wheels. Big wheels, indeed, but still wheels instead of working tracks.

Furthermore, the official Twitter account of the Israeli Prime Minister’s spokesperson for Arab media, Ofir Gendelman, claims that the vehicle is made of wood and points out the fact that it does have wheels.

The moral of this story is that you should never show off your customized vehicle on the Internet (or in real life, for that matter) and claim it is something else. Because somebody will point out that you are lying. Another thing to learn from this story is that making false claims on the Internet is less harmful than terrorism, so the guys at Hamas could keep doing that instead of attacking innocent people, for whatever reason.

Just today, an attack took place in Jerusalem, at the Damascus Gate. A young police agent, only 19 years old of age, lost her life protecting tourists. She was a border police officer and had only been drafted two months ago. We are mentioning this because the Hamas terror group praised the attack at the Damascus Gate, of which they claimed to be an “important turning point,” Times of Israel reports.

The attack involved three people who possessed firearms, knives, and an improvised explosive device. Fortunately, they did not get the chance to detonate the IED, but they attacked the two border police agents who requested their IDs. One of the two border control agents was the 19-year-old woman, who was fatally shot. The Hamas terror group stopped short of taking credit for the attack.
