Footage has emerged showing dozens of pieces of Israeli military equipment captured by Palestinians
Footage taken by members of the Palestinian group Hamas has appeared online, showing dozens of captured Israeli military equipment.
In the published footage, you can see Hammer armored vehicles and a significant number of Israeli Namer armored personnel carriers, which apparently fell into the hands of the Palestinians as a result of the seizure of an Israeli military base.
Hamas previously announced the capture of 14 tanks and other types of military equipment of the Israeli army. The Palestinians also captured more than 35 Israeli soldiers and settlers. The Israeli Namer armored personnel carrier is built on the chassis of the Merkava IV tank and is one of the most armored models of armored vehicles of this class in the world. Translated from Hebrew, the name of this armored personnel carrier means "Leopard".
In connection with the events in the country, the head of the Israeli government, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced that Israel is currently in a state of war. In response to Palestinian attacks, Israeli aviation attacked 21 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli army is conducting an operation against Hamas called "Iron Swords".
The US Security Council expressed full solidarity with Israel in connection with Hamas attacks on the territory of this country. The authorities of Iran and Syria, in turn, declared their full support for Hamas’s actions in Israel.
It is also reported that the Lebanese paramilitary group Hezbollah has expressed its readiness to come to the aid of the Palestinians in the event of an Israeli ground operation in the Gaza Strip.
