Palestinians use Kornet-E anti-tank systems

16

The Palestinian militant group Al-Quds Brigade (the military wing of the Islamic Jihad group) distributed a video demonstrating the use of the Russian portable anti-tank missile system 9K135E Cornet-E against Israeli forces on the Gaza Strip and Israel. The video shows how a rocket is launched by a female operator (?) From a residential building. This attack, according to the statement of the Al-Quds Brigade, was made on November 20 2012 of the year against "congregation of Zionist soldiers" in the Eshkol region. As a result of the attack, according to the Brigade communique, "one Zionist soldier was killed and 11 was injured." 20 November, the Israeli army reported the death of one soldier in the Eshkol area "as a result of mortar shelling."

This is the first known image of the Kornet-E ATGM in the hands of the Palestinians. Previously, only the use of this complex by Palestinian groups without supporting photo or video was reported. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine claimed the use of the Cornet-E complex on November 10 2012, when they were hit by an Israeli light armored vehicle MDT David (Land Rover) and injured four Israeli soldiers. 7 April 2011, Hamas militants hit an Israeli school bus with a Kornet-E missile and hit one person. And the first Palestinian use of the Kornet-E on the Gaza border was 6 and December 2010, when the Israeli Merkava Mk 3 tank was shot down by the complex.

    Then I wonder why there are so many corpses of children.
    From the apartment building on the tank with a rocket - and do not care that families with children live in the house, and the tanks will shoot at the rocket exit point.

    And the first use of the Kornet-E by the Palestinians on the border of the Gaza Strip took place on December 6, 2010, when the Israeli tank Merkava Mk 3 was hit by a complex.

    By the way, what do our Israeli comrades say about this? There was, wasn’t? Maybe the photo will be shared --- as they say the press is free. Or is it still censoring?

      Lack of photos doesn't mean censorship. This means the absence of a photographer next to the tank. Or do you assume that every tank that is hit will be immediately photographed by the army on its own and posted on the net? Photographed - yes, for public access - with what joy, what kind of nonsense? Censorship, first of all, concerns the indication of the location of bases, the faces of soldiers, etc. If a journalist has photographed a battered tank, then, as it were, the censorship is unlikely to pull the handle to it. If only because I hadn’t delayed before - otherwise you would not have seen the pictures of the damaged Merkavs. What kind of kindergarten? What kind of censorship?

      "According to a senior Israeli military, the Kornet missile pierced the armor of the Merkava-3 tank, which was patrolling an electronic barrage installed along the border with the troubled Gaza Strip. The armored car crew was saved only by the fact that, for an unknown reason, the Kornet missile did not explode. However, according to Israeli sources, the tank was hit. "
      This is relative to the case itself. And your favorite censorship. Data a year ago with a hook in the Russian press, in the Israeli - a little earlier. Type of missile indicated, penetration recognized, etc.

        Well, one woman said it from the category, probably someone from the crew was disheveled on Facebook, and there was nothing left to do. And the tank itself would have removed the crew’s phones, when the workers of the tank repair plant were brought to the plant.

        And so, if the penetration were harmless or if there wasn’t a press service, the IDF would have made a press release with invulnerability. In comparison with Israel, the freedom of speech and the national journalists are compared to Israel.

        And by the way, that the use of Kornets in 2006 is not confirmed, and they would have boasted without a doubt.

          Tell me, do you hear what I'm talking about, or don’t even try.
          You can’t hide anything. In such moments as real losses, names of the dead, etc. There is military censorship, but it is quite limited, and concerns such things as the exact location of units (although this, in fact, has long been known), details of military operations, names of, say, pilots, etc.
          Issues such as real losses, injured, what weapons the enemy uses are open. Yes, in most cases I won’t tell you where exactly the rocket hit - because it would be nonsense. You confuse freedom of speech with anarchy, you raise everything to a certain absolute. He's not around. As there is no absolute justice, absolute democracy and other things.

          I told you about five times what about censorship. If you noticed, the tank in Igor’s report was shot by not-the most friendly Israeli channel - Al-Jazeera. Nevertheless, the channel in Israel has a representative office and is actively filming.

          You are now reasoning from the perspective of a five-year-old child, not an adult, and as I thought, a smart enough man.

          And in 2006 they boasted of cornets. You just need to search for information on the Internet.

          October 22, 2011. The head of the Hezbollah’s Moscow-based delegation, Muhammad Raad, thanked Russia for the weapons with which Hezbollah, according to Raad, “crushed the Israeli occupiers.” A quote from the Lebanese terrorist's thank-you note is quoted by Islamnews:
          “If in the last century the“ Kalashnikov ”was a symbol of resistance and the struggle for freedom, then in our century the Russian rocket“ Cornet ”became such a symbol, with the help of which Hezbollah crushed the Israeli occupiers. In particular, thanks to the accuracy and power of the missiles, it was possible to destroy the myth of the Israeli Merkava tank, thus discovering its weaknesses and limited capabilities, ”said Raad.

          Honestly, I don't understand - you really don't understand how the press and press services work, what do both of them do? If you want, I'll explain to you - because I worked from both sides. Sorry, but your "fabrications", both from that point of view and from another point of view, are nonsense.

            I can clearly see that there is censorship and silence of information. In the video of the Merkava, the best tank in the world there is no mention that it was broken by a substandard rocket in 2010.
            I see that the photo of the padded mercenaries is LESS than the photo of the padded Abrams and I see in this the work of censorship, you can rename it somehow.

      A hundred times already explained, all in any way.
      "Censorship (lat. Censura) control of the authorities over the content and dissemination of information, printed materials, musical and stage works, works of art, film and photo works, radio and television broadcasts, websites and portals, in some cases also private correspondence, in order to limit or prevent the dissemination of ideas and information recognized by this authority as harmful or undesirable "
      How does it fit in that the Army does not publish its photographs? Is it censorship? So I personally was in Lebanon at the damaged tank, and none of the soldiers took pictures, no one forbade, there was nobody to photograph, there is no need to attribute censorship here, if someone photographs a damaged tank, they will not do anything to him, this is a fact.

The Army itself has photos, we didn’t take pictures, it didn’t occur to me to photograph a wrecked tank, unlike you, this is not my fetish. I don’t understand this strange argument “there are no hundreds of photos in the public domain, censorship”, my entire service, 3 years, took pictures at all bases where I was, if it was prohibited, we were warned, but otherwise I did not feel any pressure on myself censorship, strict bans, and so on, although there is a whole collection of photographs from military operations in Gaza, pierced by armored personnel carriers, D-9s and Akhzarits with broken tracks. I didn’t feel censorship on myself, but of course I’m lying, in Lebanon we were all eager to take pictures of the damaged equipment, but we were forbidden under threat of rubbing it ..

    Kars,
    On December 6, the Russian Kornet anti-tank complex (ATGM) was successfully used against Israeli armored vehicles in Palestine for the first time. The Israelis acknowledged the fact that the Merkava-3 tank had been hit.

    This was announced by the chief of the Israeli General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi. It is noteworthy that this statement was made during a meeting of the parliamentary commission on foreign affairs and defense. The senior Israeli military said that "we are talking about a heavy missile, one of the most dangerous in our region."

    Ashkenazi said the Kornet missile managed to penetrate the armor of the Merkava that was patrolling an electronic fence along the border with the Gaza Strip. The tank's crew was saved only by the fact that, for some unknown reason, the Kornet's rocket did not explode. Nevertheless, according to Israeli sources, the tank was hit.

        Here, most likely, we are talking about the failure of the main cumulative charge of the tandem warhead of the ATGM ATK Cornet. Which even more calls into question the protection of the Merkava 3 MBT, and which has been changed (especially the side of the tower) recently.
        Well, thanks to the openness of the Israeli military, we don’t know which projection hit the rocket, and how much the tank was damaged. The absence of victims indicates minor damage.

    As a result of the attack, according to the Brigades communiqué, "one Zionist soldier was killed and 11 wounded." On November 20, the Israeli army reported the death of one soldier in the Eshkol area "as a result of mortar attacks."


    if my aunt shot a cumulative ammunition, which is of course very wasteful, then she probably took a good aim at one soldier. I imagine what was left of the poor fellow when the cumulative charge got nnda ... If the aunt used thermobaric ammunition then the fatalities should be bigger. This is an article.
