The military wing of Hamas, the al-Qassam Brigades, released an animated video on its affiliated websites warning Israel against launching sorties over Gaza. The clip shows Israeli Air Force jets striking Gaza, as an al-Qassam cell successfully shoots down a warplane.
A warning then flashes on the screen in Hebrew and Arabic: "Our country's skies are sacred. Your planes may not fly in them.'
The clip ends with an Israeli soldier – likely the pilot from the intercepted jet – being captured by Hamas terrorists.
