Israel expresses regret over “shocking” incident, condemning Gaza’s terrorists for strapping the explosive devices to an animal in order to kill IDF soldiers.
IDF forces operating in the Rafah area near the Gaza-Egypt border located the donkey suspiciously approaching their position and were forced to open fire at it, causing the explosives to detonate.
No injuries were sustained to the soldiers.
The military expressed its regret over the “shocking” incident, and condemned terrorists in Gaza for strapping bombastic devices to innocent animals as a means of attacking Israeli forces.
“This cruel incident is the most recent attempt by Gaza terror organizations to make such an abominable use of animals as explosives couriers,” the IDF said on its website.
