GAZA, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Militant Palestinian Islamist group Hamas announced it has captured a suspected Israeli spy: a dolphin equipped with cameras and other devices.

Hamas, based in Gaza, said the naval unit of its military wing discovered a dolphin equipped with cameras and other spying devices off shore and captured the animal.

The Arabic-language Al-Quds newspaper said the dolphin had been "stripped of its will" and turned into "a murderer" by the Israeli military.

Israeli officials have not responded to the allegations.

The condition of the captured dolphin was unclear Thursday.

Israel previously defended itself from allegations that its intelligence agency, Mossad, was linked to Red Sea shark attacks in Egypt in 2010.
