Smuggled Hamas Stinger Weapon Worked Perfectly

Subhed: Hamas Gunners Die of Acute Technological Incompetence and Stinger Missiles, But Mostly... A Little From Column A and a Little From Column B.

Hamas attempted to target Israeli-owned American-built Apache helicopters during last year's war. But the Stingers recognized the Apaches as friendly targets, and refused to target them.

One Stinger found a new target:

Another Hamas source said gunners deployed Stinger along with heavy machine guns in attacks on Israeli helicopters during the war in the Gaza Strip. The source said one Stinger surface-to-air missile was launched, but the projectile veered off course and struck a Hamas gunner squad.

"The Stinger was drawn by the heat of our guns rather than the engines of the Israeli helicopters," the source said. "At that point, we stopped using this weapon."

File it under "Stung."

They're buying Russian now.
