Hamas disinformation: Hamas shot down an Israeli F-16 fighter plane

Al-Risala, Hamas, newspaper  |
On the fourth day of Israel's Operation Pillar of Defense targeting terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, the Hamas website Al-Risala published the following:
"Hamas' military wing Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades confirmed that an 'Israeli' F-16 fighter plane was shot down in the Al-Wusta Governorate. A reconnaissance aircraft was shot down as well. Abu Ubeida [the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades' spokesperson] said that the resistance and the Al-Qassam Brigades are doing well, and the occupation's claim that the power of the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip has been destroyed is merely a lie. He described the Iron Dome (Israeli system that can intercept and destroy missiles in the air), which was built by the occupation and which costs it millions in order to intercept Palestinian rockets, as the 'Paper Dome.'"
