Palestinian members of al-Qassam Brigades stand near a model of a Hamas manufactored A1b drone, during a ceremony marking the eleventh anniversary of the death of former Hamas leader Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, in the eastern Gaza City neighborhood of Shejaiya, on April 17, 2015. Though the Hamas drone flight ended in failure during the 50-day Israeli war in the summer of 2014, Hamas's drone program has fulfilled broader goals. Hamas claims the drones it can now produce are intended more as a show of strength and to cement support at home . Photo by Mohammed Asad
