Jerusalem – Hamas flew a drone into the air during a military rally to mark 27 years since the founding of the Islamist organization. In response,┬áthe IDF scrambled jets to the Gaza border on Sunday

The drone, which Hamas claims was built in Gaza, and upon which was written “Kassam Brigades,” the name of the group’s military wing, did not cross the border into Israel.

According to a military source, the jets were prepared to deal with the threat, but returned to base after the air force saw there was no threat to Israeli air space.

During the Hamas military rally, convoys paraded signs of the organization’s military prowess through the streets of the coastal territory, including long-range missiles mounted on trucks and Kassam Brigade fighters and naval commandos brandishing weapons.
