IDF–COURAGE UNDER FIRE (THE COWARDLY LION WAS VERY IMPRESSED)
July 28, 2014
The Artillery Corps Support Unit watched the battle with alarm, and took drastic action, the source said. “Otherwise, I knew we would be getting 600 body bags back.” It instructed all of the Golani soldiers to enter their Namer armored personnel carrier [APC], and launched a wave of shelling…. Three artillery battalions rained down fire on Shejaia, in a bid to rescue the Golani soldiers. As this occurred, the source said, Hamas continued to blast the soldiers with mortars from all around the neighborhood. “We heard them say over the radio: Fire is coming down on us,” the source said. After twenty minutes of shelling, silence ensued. “There were no more Hamas mortars, no more anti-tank missiles, no more automatic weapon fire,” the source said. Ten buildings lay in ruins.
