Israel prides itself on having the most powerful military in the Middle East. It certainly isn’t lacking in its possession of top-of-the-line technology, largely courtesy of American taxpayers who subsidize the maintenance of Israel’s qualitative military edge.

It was taken in Hebron on 7 December, during anti-occupation protests following Trump's announcement. pic.twitter.com/ClslzMQtsA
