Hamas' Psychological War with Israel

In the wake of the recent barrage of rockets launched at Israel from Gaza — and the killing of an IDF officer in the Strip — Hamas has been working overtime to advance anti-Israel sentiment in the media. Ynet News' Yossi Yehoshua takes a look at the terror group's media campaign, as well as the IDF's work to combat the misinformation being spread:

...it appears Hamas is well prepared for psychological warfare. In the recent rounds of fighting with Israel, Hamas has shown an impressive use of the media: by documenting almost every terror cell infiltration to Israel as well as filming— in high-quality and from several different angles—the Cornet missile that was fired at an Israeli bus...

Conversely, the details being released are not necessarily from Gaza and not necessarily true. Hamas is still trying to gather a lot of information coming from civilians on social media in an effort to connect the dots and get a clearer picture of what happened.

Over the weekend, Hamas was looking for a truck it believes was used by the IDF force or its collaborators in the operation. The terror group's military wing believes the truck is still in the strip and that finding it could help shed new light on the Israeli mission.

Hamas believes the Israeli force was sent to plant listening devices on internal communication networks used by the military wings of the Palestinian factions in the strip. The terror organization also believes this operation was one of a series of incursions done over a long period of time, and not a one-off mission.

Meanwhile, it appears Israel has been able to hide quite a lot of the details.
