Analyzing HAMAS Militant Attacks on Tanks

Deception, Active Protection Systems, and the Propaganda War



HAMAS is releasing slickly produced videos of militants attacking IDF tanks, but the tanks don’t seem to be “brewing up” after the attack. The reality is that the weapons used, such as the RPG-7, even with a tandem-charge warhead may not be able to penetrated a Merkava 4 tank, even with a flank or rear shot.

However, just creating the video can be considered a propaganda victory for HAMAS.
