Israel on Thursday accused Palestinian movement Hamas of possessing shoulder-to-air missiles, that can target low-flying aircraft.
Quoted by Israeli radio, an anonymous senior Israeli army officer said that Hamas now plans to use these capabilities to shoot down any Israeli military aircraft flying over Gaza.
The Israeli Army believes that these weapons have been smuggled through underground tunnels located at the borders between Gaza and Egypt.
According to the radio, the Israeli army has said it will be ready for any such attacks. Agencies
