Two shooting incidents were carried out at IDF engineering tools that routinely operated today (Wednesday) near the perimeter fence. In light of the events, Maariv’s military correspondent Tal Lev Ram was interviewed On 103 FM And argued that this was not a coincidence. “Under the radar, the IDF is conducting a campaign on the issue of the struggle for those agricultural areas and the cleaning of the security parameter,” explained Lev Ram, who also said that two incidents in a short period of time, without the IDF being able to identify the shooter, indicate an incident. Complex and serious “more than someone’s local initiative”.
Lev Ram: “Let’s try to go over the sequence of events for a moment. A little after 12:00, an IDF force that actually operates west of the fence, the so-called security parameter, that is, a special security area, 100 meters from the fence where the IDF operates. Completely free of agricultural crops, weeds, from what you do not want, so as not to allow terrorists to reach the fence, to allow sightings to detect a rapprochement, etc. They operate east of Khan Yunis. It hits the windshield, causes minor damage, of course does not penetrate. “
You’re assuming the sniper knew the D9 was protected, but I read other military commentators coming in and saying, ‘Whoever fired this way at the D9 must have meant to cause the death of an IDF fighter sitting in that D9.
“I do not know how to get into a sniper’s mind in Gaza, I’m just saying that such an incident is not a coincidence. In the background of this incident, under the radar, the IDF is conducting a campaign on the issue of the struggle for those agricultural areas and the cleaning of the security parameter. That is, he distributes to those farmers, leaflets written in both Hebrew and Arabic that say the following thing – ‘We see your leakage towards the special security area, please take your tools out of this area. We’re going to work there and clean up the area. ‘ The IDF operates today in this format, as it did two and three weeks ago. This is not a coincidence. When an incident of this kind happens on the fence, I suppose Hamas at best, either raises an eye or flies more than that. That is, it is a kind of struggle over the same area of a security parameter. Did they want to kill a soldier, yes or no? This is already a real issue for the issue of interpretation. “Ultimately, the IDF should treat firing at soldiers as if they wanted to kill the soldier, and therefore, the response should be accordingly.”
Lev Lev went on to say that “I suppose there is a campaign here that Hamas is also involved in, it is not something accidental, but it is part of the same struggle over the security parameter. Therefore, we see an event that is really far from being a coincidence of someone coming out with a weapon IDF. By the way, you can also see it from the skill of that sniper – he manages to hit the windshield, he manages not to be recognized, and he manages to fire a second time in the same space, without the IDF force recognizing where the shooting is taking place. More complex and serious than any local initiative. By the way, I want to take you back a few months, when Hamas fired mortar shells near the force, when it could have hit the same force, even as part of those signals. Can we easily degenerate into something that is More complex, longer and more significant? Certainly yes. But it seems to me that at the moment the struggle is over the security parameter, and this is the event we are seeing today that is happening at noon. In the evening, as usual, I assume there will be an IDF response. How difficult and complex will it be? we do not know. I guess she will be in the same level of reaction. “
If they were firing an anti-tank on this D9, I guess the reaction would have been tougher.
“I suppose you are right, and I suppose the chance of harm to human life was also much higher.”
