'Palestinian' group posts video of missile attack on IDF jeep (with video)
The 'Popular Resistance Committees,' the same Hamas front group that took 'credit' for kidnapping Gilad Shalit six years ago, has posted a video online of what purports to be the anti-tank missile attack on an IDF jeep patrolling the Gaza security fence on Sunday.
The video was posted a number of times on YouTube but repeatedly removed by the site's administrators.
video appears to be shot from the Gaza-side of the border, and captures
two IDF patrol jeeps making their way along the border. A guided
missile, possibly a Kornet, can be seen striking the forward jeep
head-on, causing an explosion.
Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.
The text introducing the purported shots of the guided missile strike
says that a" group of Mujahadeen from the al-Nasser Salah al-Din
Brigades targeted a Jeep east of Gaza with a guided missile at 16:10 on
Saturday 10.11.2012, the Jeep was destroyed and a Zionist soldier killed
and three others injured with serious injuries."
Four soldiers were injured in the attack, and one soldier remains in serious condition with a head injury.
opening of the clip shows the logo of al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades,
the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees.
then shows text from the Quran, Surat al-Hashr (The Exile) which talks
about how the Jewish people were exiled from their homes by the will of
Allah, because of their transgressions.
Let's hope the IDF gets the chance for revenge soon.
