Hand-to-hand combat in Gaza from UAV

This is footage at night from an unmanned IDF plane in which you can see a Gaza battle between two IDF officers and two terrorists. In the end, one of the officers uses the dead body of a terrorist to shield himself against a grenade thrown by the second terrorist - which killed the second terrorist.

I don't understand what happened. Can you explain it Carl? I watched it a few times, but don't understand the dance moves.

The two terrorists were hidden in the brush (the black spot near top left). They opened fire on the soldiers and threw a grenade. The grenade missed. The soldiers shot one terrorist. Then the two commanders charged the other one. One of the commanders went behind the body of the dead terrorist, picked him up and used him as a shield against the other terrorist. When the second terrorist threw a grenade he killed himself while the commander was unharmed.

It looks to me like they used the remaining live terrorist as a shield.

Are you certain it was the dead terrorist?

Either way, what a miracle! Everything at such close range and everything missed. Everyone came out unscathed.

When do such things ever happen?
