T50,000 he official narrative in which an Israeli tank “accidentally” hit an Egyptian military post on the border with Israel over the weekend has been met with doubts in Egypt as Israel ramps up a non-stop, deadly and indiscriminate bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip for the third consecutive week.
An Egyptian retired army officer and an engineer specialised in electronic warfare opined to The New Arab that the attack near the Kerem Shalom area was “not accidental”, as the Israeli defence ministry claimed. Instead, he argued it was related to a “foul play.”
“Technically, the tanks utilised by the Israeli army can never miss their target,” the former senior officer claimed to TNA, on condition of anonymity since he was not authorised to talk to the media.
“The Israelis have always bragged about their state-of-the-art Merkava tanks and high precision. Such a tank, which ideally accommodates a crew of a commander, a gunner, a driver and a loader, could bomb a post by mistake as they only fire based on planned and specified coordinates and details of the targets fed to its system” the senior officer added.
