Israeli security forces used commando dolphins to chase Palestinian Hamas commandos, the terrorist organisation claimed on Monday.

During an operation that occurred at an unspecified time, Hamas naval operatives were allegedly chased into the sea by a dolphin equipped with a device capable of killing the men, an Al-Qassam brigades naval commandos spokesperson revealed in a video.

"Killer Zionist dolphins exist, according to a Hamas publication," tweeted Joe Truzman, research analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ Long War Journal.

"Abu Hamza explains that a member of Hamas' Frogman unit who was killed by Israel during the May conflict found the killer dolphin. The device the alleged killer dolphin was wearing is shown in the publication."

The exact function of the supposed aquatic attacker's device were not specified.

But Al-Quds claimed it had sources surrounding another combat-ready underwater creature incident in August 2015 where it was equipped with a remote control, camera and a weapon that could fire harpoon-like projectiles.

It is alleged that Hamas succeeded in capturing the 2015 Israeli dolphin operative, but it was never reported on what became of the military creature.

According to BBC, the newspaper reported that the marine mammal was "stripped of its will" and turned into "a murderer" by Israeli forces.

There have been multiple reports of killer Israeli dolphins and militarised marine life.

This newest claim has been met with some ridicule online, with some Twitter users questioning if the dolphin had laser weapons attached – a reference to the hit movie Austin Powers.

Marine animals have had a long history of military use, but usually for surveillance and equipment retrieval, not the killing machines that Hamas claimed it attempted to evade.
