Hamas has not released photographs of the dolphin it claims to have captured
Hamas has captured a dolphin that it says the Israel Navy was using to attack members of its armed wing, Izzadin Kassam, the Palestinian daily Al-Quds claimed on Wednesday.
The militant Palestinian Islamist group, which dominates Gaza, says the mammal was equipped with spying devices, including cameras, according to the newspaper Al-Quds (in Arabic).
It was apparently discovered by a naval unit of Hamas's military wing and brought ashore.
Naturally no photographs of the alleged marine secret agent have been released...he he he
Their comment get even more comical as the Al-Quds claim that the newest recruit was "stripped of its will" and turned into "a murderer" by the Israeli security services. It shows the extent of Israel's "anger" and "indignation" at the formation of Hamas's naval combat unit, the paper reports.
Hamas claimed in their news that naval commandos had noticed the dolphin making “suspicious movements.” When they followed the mammal, they discovered that it was carrying a device to monitor underwater activities, they said.
They claimed that Hamas frogmen had managed to seize the dolphin and take it to the shore, and that the dolphin had been equipped with a remote control monitoring device and a camera. According to the sources, the captured device can fire small arrows that could kill or seriously wound anyone who dove deep into the sea. (Just like a James Bond Dolphin)
The report said Hamas believed Israel was planning to target or monitor the movement’s naval commandos during their training in the sea.
It added that Hamas experts were continuing to check whether the captured dolphin was carrying other electronic devices.
Hamas officials in the Gaza Strip refused to comment on the newspaper report.
It is not the first time that Israel has been accused of using animals - and birds - for spying purposes.
Take a look at the fantastic Islamist intelligence at its best here below.
In 2010 Israel dismissed Egyptian claims
that a series of shark attacks in the Red Sea could have been the result of a Mossad plot.
A few weeks later a vulture found in Saudi Arabia with a GPS transmitter
was accused of being an unwitting Mossad operative.
with a ring on its leg had been an Israeli spy. Their fear proved unfounded.
