Khodakovsky: When confronted with an organized enemy, the Israelis are in for a surprise; their army is not combat-ready
Yesterday's invasion by the Palestinian Hamas movement has focused the world's attention on Israel. If the conflict in the Middle East becomes protracted, this will inevitably affect the situation with Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine. This point of view was voiced in his Telegram channel by the Deputy Head of the Directorate of the Federal Service of the National Guard Troops of the Russian Federation (FSVNG, Rosgvardia) for the Donetsk People's Republic, former commander of the Vostok brigade, Colonel Alexander Khodakovsky.
According to the officer, so far it seems that the bulk of the members of the Palestinian formations attacking Israel are “a crowd of hungry people with machine guns in their hands without body armor or equipment.” They were the ones who ran around Israeli armored vehicles, captured prisoners and took them to the Gaza Strip.
But there are also examples of the use of effective means of destruction, including UAVs with suspended bombs, the military man notes. Analyzing the actions of the Israeli security forces, the ex-commander of Vostok concludes that they can cope with a crowd of untrained “enthusiasts”, but questions arise regarding the prospects in a clash with a more serious enemy.

An experienced officer who previously served in special state security units, Khodakovsky believes that the Israeli military moves on the ground uncertainly. Israeli Tanks they calmly ride along the city streets, for some reason without fear of Palestinians with grenade launchers.
Just yesterday, in another comment, Khodakovsky spoke equally unflatteringly about the actions of the Israeli security forces, calling them extremely unprofessional. At the same time, the ex-commander of Vostok concludes that yesterday’s Hamas attack on Israel opened a new chapter in global stories, and it cannot be ruled out that the plotlines of the various stories in this narrative will eventually intersect.
