The terrorists wore IDF uniforms
The two groups of Hamas terrorists who emerged from terror tunnels
on the Israeli side of the border on Monday morning wore IDF uniforms
according to IDF Southern District Commander Major General Sami Turgeman.
Dozens of terrorists in military uniform emerged from a tunnel, and were successfully stopped by the military, Turgeman added.
Uncovering the tunnels is a complex and challenging task, requiring intelligence and technology, he added.
IDF's work in destroying tunnels, both inside Gaza and cross-border
tunnels, "is disturbing the enemy," which spent years digging
Two terrorist attack cells entered Israel from northern Gaza via a smuggling tunnel on Monday morning.
were identified by IDF lookouts, and an aircraft was dispatched to
intercept them. The first cell was struck from the air, and ten of its
members were killed.
The second cell fired an anti-tank missile at a military vehicle.
Shin Bet sent an alert to the IDF hours before the attack, warning of
intentions of terrorists in northern Gaza to infiltrate the country.
Shin Bet said a serious and complex terror attack has been thwarted
"due to the readiness of the IDF on the ground, following the pinpoint
alert that was sent."
By the way, in addition to it being a war crime to fight without a uniform, I believe it is also a war crime to fight while wearing the other side's uniform.
