Al-Quds Brigades Reveal First Ever Video Showing Drone Attack On Israeli Tank, APC

Donate

For the first time ever, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, the al-Quds Brigades, released a video showing its fighters targeting Israeli military vehicles around the Palestinian Gaza Strip with an armed drone.

The video, which was first broadcasted by the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV in the noon of May 30, shows an armed drone targeting a Merkava IV main battle tank and an Achzarit armored personnel carrier (APC) of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). The attack occurred during the recent Gaza–Israel clashes.

“Your fortresses don’t stand before us,” a message in Arabic and Hebrew in the video reads.

The drone used in the attack appears to be a small-size quadcopter, similar to the famous DJI Phantom. The drone dropped small projectiles, similar to submunitions usually used in cluster rockets and bombs.

ISIS was the first to arm commercially bought drones and use them in combat. The battle of Mosul in Iraq witnessed an extensive use of such drones with the Iraqi military losing several vehicles to drone attacks.

While the terrorist group was the first to use armed drones, Hezbollah was the first to arm them with submunitions. In late 2016, the Lebanese armed group attacked several militants’ positions near the city of Aleppo with drones armed with Chinese-made MZD2 submunitions.

The accuracy of the armed drone used by the al-Quds Brigades appears to be poor. However, the acquisition of such weapon remains a threat to the Israeli military, especially that it can be improved.

    Two attacks, two misses, the only damage being some soiled Israeli underpants. It’s more that the ability that this makes a threat then the actual success rate. It will be easily countered though. These commercial drones aren’t exactly military grade. The Russians knock them down all the time. I’m sure that the IDF will come up with something soon. Probably at the expense of the American tax payer.

      f.o.you miserable toad

      • David Parker

        And what drives you to that conclusion? After learning some history of Palestine and seeing how the IDF operates on the Syrian West Bank and in Gaza, I think it is about time the Palestinians got some payback and forced the Zionists to admit they have a right to life in their own land. The local people always seem to get along just fine until some Zionist-controlled CIA agents dig in a stir up strife. Everyone else is content to live and let live and make deals except that the scum who call themselves government continuously increase taxes and control.

  • Prince Teutonic

    And I thought they got Shahed 129 combat drone from Iranians…

  • Saso Mange

    It just goes in favor of Israeli propaganda while it did no damage.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Battle field testing is essential, no body believed that Hamas would have Kornets and precision starburst long range missiles either, until they took out a whole housing block in Zionist occupied Ashkelon and Beersheba. Never underestimate your enemies capabilities.

      • Barba_Papa

        True, but showing off your capabilities without much success will cause the enemy to develop counters before you can even achieve success.

      • Saso Mange

        Are you even serious? Commercial drone used to drop improvised explosive device should go through ”battle testing”? So that Zionist scumbags can say ”look we have to defend ourselves”. At least hit them like Hezbollah did or do not do stupid things to endanger Palestinians. It’s beyond me how shit like this happens i can bet this was cooked in Mossad.
        Hamas manage to buy stuff only from Israeli and Egyptian weapon smugglers and that’s it, they pay 100x price for little damage it does. Unless they manage to hit like Hezbollah in 2006 better not to go into offensive which only goes in favor of Zionist entity.

  • verner

    more of that much much more and at the end of the day the squatters will be relocated to the great disintegrating states of A (neo-nazi to the core and certified idiots) provided the unwashed public will allow green cards to the lot, which is doubtful. as much hated by the ordinary american as they are hated by the rest of the world.

  • klove and light

    the key issue here…and by the way also in jemen for the brave houthtis using such weapons/drones…is not necessarily the DAMAGE beeing made on their advesaries, but rather the TERROR it inflicts on the opposing side..ie. the drone attack of the houhtis past week on the Airport, or the drone attack on the oil Pipeline…….. inhamas´s case… we all remember during the last 2 Major conflicts between gaza and Israel, the Pictures of the media, of dozens upon dozens of tanks lined up, with hundreds of IDF soldiers sitting on their asses, playing Cards and having a ball while their artillery and airforce wreck havoc in gaza……..
    THOSE TIMES are over now…..thats the Point…the IDF soldier cannot be in “warzone” Feeling untouchable anymore…..thats the Terror….

  • hvaiallverden

    Yeah, nice try, and to me, the deed was good enough, depends on what and how you think, regarding strategy and to inflict uncertatys on the enemys forward stationed/frontline forces and inward to hit logistics, to pulverise an tank, even an ww1 needs firepower, bigger than what smal drones can carrie with them so they improviced.

    Again, then, if not total pulveriastion of possible, not easy by any standards to take out an moder tank, forget Holloweed shit, in real its not easy, smal margines, smal areas of maxium effect, an molotove cotail could be equally effective thrown from the ground of close by compounds, if you comparde damage level possibilitys, but in the front like, an damaged tank is an death trap, an sitting duck, and requires man power and so on to do anything with it, and like an wonded soldier, takes efforts and manpower, and is basically an hinderance, or you could simply ingore it and take it as an loos.
    But to repair it or move it, is whats the problem as I have mentioned above, so an direct hit isnt always the best result, infact I would go for maximum damage with minimum effect, and spread the damage if you can, damage several instead of just one, etc, this renders usually equimpents to be comisoned, and ignored, to risky to do something with, simple exposer, and so on, and war costs.

    When I was in the Military as an Con, I was told not to shoot to kill, but to maim, and that was because of expactly what I have described above.

    The indian wars, the effective way was to hammer the enemys logistics.
    Time consuming, man consuming, but in long term, empiers have managed to broke them self on prolonged warfare, not an wise move, even 2500years ago, just read, the Zun Tzu. Art of war.
    Bleed them dry, war sucks mooney.
    All in all, an good enough weapon, regarding sice, cost and effective.

    peace

  • occupybacon

    Actually if that was a can of pork the damage was much heavier

    • Barba_Papa

      LOL!

      Although wouldn’t that make the Islamic Jihad tech who makes those bomb a sort of suicide tech?

      • occupybacon

        Ok, now please stop insulting my preferred food.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Who would have thought it, IDF being used as live target practice.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Drone itself could obviously be controlled to impact with the target…
    That is the message here.

  • John

    It has stepped up a notch.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Considering the fact that Gaza is totally quarantined by Zionist scum and Egyptian arse lickers, Hamas must be commended for doing the best it can from its very limited resources. In the last flare-up, the Gazan resistance made the Zionist child killing cowardly scum cry uncle sam after the Fajr/Badr starburst 330mm missiles made their debut and the much vaunted Zionist Iron Dud failed to intercept even 3% of the missiles.

    • Barba_Papa

      It’s not Hamas who did this, but Islamic Jihad. A different organization. Most likely Hamas will now groan at these attempts because they will be made to pay for it when the Israeli’s retaliate.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    very nice, mashallah :)))
