Here's The Iranian-Made Drone Hamas Is Flying Over Gaza

• Business Insider

Ababil (Persian: ÇÈÇÈیáý, "swallow") is the name of a large family of UAV made in Iran developed for tactical reconnaissance, short/medium range attack, and as target drones.

The Ababil 1 is one of the less known variants belonging to the family, which includes the Ababil 3, the Ababil 5 medium range recon drone, the Ababil-T, a twin-tailed attack variant used by Hezbollah in northern Israel, and several other scarcely seen or unconfirmed models.

The aircraft depicted in the footage released by Hamas carries four AGMs (Air-to-Ground Missiles) even though it is almost impossible to say whether they are real weapons or just mock ups. In fact, the group claimed on Twitter that the A1B carried out three missions over Israeli military bases and a specific mission over the Israeli War Ministry but the fact the drone didn't use any of the on board weaponry seems to suggest it does not have a real weapons capability.
