?HERO: IDF officer wounded by sniper fire from Gaza worried about his soldiers being left alone
?️ HERO: 21-year-old IDF officer who was moderately wounded by sniper fire from Muslim terrorists at the Gaza border, asked ‘When am I going back to Gaza?’ and did not want to be evacuated because he was worried about his soldiers being left alone. ‘My soldiers are here, I’m not going,’ he told paramedics.
A Muslim terrorist in Gaza fired at IDF troops under the cover of 20 children that were sent towards the border fence as decoy.
The 21-year-old officer from Dimona recounted the incident to his father. “He said the children-terrorists were rioting by the border fence, and then he felt a strong blow,” the father said.
The officer was taken to the Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva in serious-to-moderate condition. After undergoing surgery, he was moved to intensive care in moderate and stable condition.
According to an initial investigation, Muslim terrorists opened fire on IDF troops from the Givati Brigade’s Tzabar Infantry Battalion who were conducting routine operations near the border fence when they were called to to disperse a “bait” riot staged by children to lure soldier within the sniper’s range.
This is the second sniper attack against the IDF in a week.
The shooting attack occurred in the Kissufim area where IDF soldier Staff Sgt. Aviv Levi was murdered by a Hamas sniper on Friday afternoon.
