The surveillance network was used by the Hamas organization for the purpose of detecting Israeli aircraft over the Gaza Strip.
As part of the Israeli Air Force strikes in the Gaza Strip, a unique surveillance network of the Hamas was destroyed on Tuesday.
The surveillance network was used by Hamas for the purpose of detecting aircraft over the territory of the Gaza Strip.
The IDF spokesman said that the terrorist organization had established for years a network of high-quality cameras, which were hidden in domestic solar heaters on the roofs of houses throughout the Gaza Strip.
The network allowed Hamas to identify and track Israeli aircraft.
According to the IDF announcement, a targeted flight of Israeli fighter jets destroyed within a few minutes all the devices associated with this network.
“IDF aircraft destroyed the advanced detection systems developed by the Hamas terrorist organization, which were used for the detection of aircraft over the Gaza Strip. Over the years, Hamas set up a high-quality network of cameras, hidden inside solar water heaters all around the Gaza Strip, in order to track and monitor Israeli aircraft. Yesterday, in a few minutes during a focused sortie, the IAF struck all of the sites of the network and demolished Hamas’ ability to form an accurate picture of the skies and their efforts to target IDF aircraft,” the army press service said in a statement.
This operation deprived Hamas of its ability to produce a wide sky image in an attempt to hit Israeli aircraft.
