Speaker: "This is the Shehab drone of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the pride of the military industry of the Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas, and Palestine. It is the story of the Palestinian revolution, the lines of which can only be written with a pen of blood."
Iyad Abu Funun: Through this achievement, the Al-Qassam Brigades have raised the level of the challenge in the face of this tyrannical enemy. [The Al-Qassam Brigades] manufactured and developed these drones. Based on firm and solid scientific and technical foundations, [the Al-Qassam Brigades] was able to manufacture Ababil, Shehad, Zouari and other drones, and what is yet to come is even mightier."
