Hamas making bomb-carrying drones

Apr 27, 2008 (PostChronicle)

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood questioned by Egyptian intelligence have said Hamas is trying to make drones to carry bombs, an Egyptian newspaper reported.
Al-Ahram said the detainees told interrogators they were working with Hamas, and that equipment and operatives with technical know-how have been moved to Gaza.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said the story is a big lie, the Jerusalem Post reported. He accused al-Ahram and other newspapers of a disinformation campaign aimed at the Palestinians.
A report by an Israeli research group said this month that Hamas had built up a fighting force of 20,000 men since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, and that more weapons were smuggled into Gaza during the breach of the Rafah crossing in January. (c) UPI
