The IDF at work

Death by Phosphorous


See the attached video


The Israelis don't screw around, do they?

What you are about to watch is an actual event. The Israeli Armed
Forces filmed this in real time. What you'll see is a fully armored
Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating,
phosphorous-filled "hand held" rocket. The rocket is small, very
portable and is a tightly controlled weapon. Each one is accounted for
when they are checked out and back in. There must be no fewer than 2
soldiers present to verify the use, one must be a senior officer with a
minimum of 10 years military service. (Sorry, the name and program is
kept secret.)

This tank was headed for one of Israel 'S settlements. There were four
more tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. They turned around before
getting to this area after learning what had happened to the lead tank.

You can hear the ammunition going off after the initial strike. No
Syrian tank crew member survived this event and it did not make the
news. It is an everyday event for Israel 'S Armed Forces and they do not
permit the "embedding" of news reporters with their armed forces like we
Americans do. This weapon and its tactical use is for their survival,
not for "news" entertainment! Perhaps we should take a page from the
Israeli Military Handbook.
