The versions were expressed about the reasons for the fire of the vehicle platform with the Israeli tank Merkava near the borders of the Gaza Strip

Information is provided on the fire of a semitrailer on which a tractor was transporting an Israeli tank Merkava Mk4 to the border of the Gaza Strip. The video below shows footage of thick black smoke rising above a vehicle platform containing an Israeli-made main battle tank. The incident happened a couple of days ago.


At the same time, users who publish these video frames give different versions of the causes of the fire on the auto platform. Some sources claim that the cause of the fire was the hit of an anti-tank missile, which was fired from the position of one of the units of the Hamas combat wing. At the same time, it is noted that the rocket hit the tank, and not the platform on which it was transported.

Others claim that there was a mortar attack, as a result of which a shrapnel from one of the mines damaged the tank of a truck transporting an armored vehicle. In this case, it is strange that not the entire truck with a semitrailer is on fire.

According to the third version, the cargo platform itself ran into an explosive device, which was allegedly installed on Israeli territory.

The footage shows an open burning under the bottom of a semi-trailer with a Merkava tank.


Recall that a few days ago Israel began to transfer its Tanks and artillery. The Israeli press announced that the country's defense army is preparing for a possible ground operation in the sector. However, at the moment, the Israeli military command refrains from such an operation.

In the IDF, publications about the incident with a semi-trailer near the borders with the Gaza Strip have not yet been officially commented on.

      The video is a combination of two scenes:
      1. An explosion in Gaza as a result of an air raid.
      2. Fire on the trailer wheels as a result of overheating of the brakes.

          There will be news for you, but there is shooting in Gaza and it can be heard from a great distance. However, in this case, you hear the explosions of burning trailer wheels. There is no ammunition in the tank, since, according to the law, the transportation of ammunition is carried out on special vehicles with appropriate markings.

            The versions are crazy.
            A Hamas missile?
            I doubt that the tank will be transported on a trailer where there is a possibility of shelling. Israel has a huge experience, and they do not make stupid mistakes.
            A mine fragment in a gas tank?
            Then the car would have burned, not the trailer.
            Land mine on the road?
            Yes, everyone is on heightened vigilance there now. It is unrealistic to smuggle a mine into Israel and plant a land mine, especially near the Gaza border.
            The Professor is most likely right. In the video, the explosion has nothing to do with the fire of the tank. The fire itself is associated with a technical malfunction of the trailer.

          Precisely and spread out in a puddle on the ground, as in the video, they are liquid !!! laughing But seriously, if the wheel caught fire, then the driver / accompanying person / crew remove the fire extinguisher from the trailer and extinguish it within 3 minutes, there is no need for a big mind. hi

        More likely, the brakes on one of the wheels blocked and the tire caught fire. I wonder why they didn't put it out on the spot?
        And the tank received a ready-made camouflage for night actions ... A fun way to apply nanocarbon coating smile .

        Overheating would have been if the trailer was on a slope and not in a building. More like a "Molotov cocktail" thrown in pursuit of the trailer and hit in the ass. Otherwise, the crew of the trailer would immediately jump out and put out.

        Can be more? What kind of aircraft flew into Gaza and bombed Israeli tanks? Maybe we don't know something? And usually the trailer wheels are located under the bottom of the trailer. And here it is burning on top of the trailer. Or are there trailers with wheels on top? Make it clear.

        And that makes the ground under the trailer burn? There are no fuel tanks on the trailer, which means that fuel has leaked from the tank.

          It is not the earth that is burning, but the rubber. There are a lot of wheels on the trailer, and under the tank itself. Firefighters cannot reach them.

      My friend's family Volvo 40 burned out like that, at first it stalled, then smoke went from under the hood, then it broke out, the fire extinguisher only delayed the inevitable, while the firefighters arrived - the car blazed like a torch.

    Actually, adventures during the transportation of BTs occur regularly and in all armies, what to discuss then? We have, perhaps, a few times and dropped from the platforms during loading and on the way that just did not happen. Or do you want a booth on a hype topic?

        I really do not see the difference between incidents during the transportation of BT in different countries, by the way, our equipment was also on fire, I myself once observed how a passenger car very "successfully" rammed a transporter with an BMP-2 at the intersection with a bunch of different special effects.
        I understand events in the form of "no parachute" landing of 3 Hamers in a row - there is where to "neigh and gloat", and here the event is not worth a damn (well, perhaps for the IDF budget, but be calm there - there will be enough budget), but presented as an event of the Age.

    The Gaza Strip is not Donbass for you, and Israel is not Russia.
    Protecting the citizens of Israel is sacred
    to defend the Russians in Donbass is aggression, this is barbarism, this is genocide of Khakhlov, Tatars, Lithuanians, and ..... everyone in general.
    Therefore, Jews in tanks under the cover of aircraft in the Gaza Strip are not at all what "Russian troops in Donbass" are, they are different, peacekeeping and humanistic ..

      The classics of foreign propaganda say in such cases the catch phrase "THIS IS ANYTHING DIFFERENT." And when it comes to Israel, completely different propaganda techniques are used. Israel is bombing sovereign Syria, Israel is bombing Lebanon, and the peace-loving public does not even notice this. But it’s scary to think about what will happen if the Russian “Tochka-U” or “Zircon” flies into the territory of Ukraine.
