“On the first day, we thwarted the firing of an anti-tank missile in the southern sector near Rafah into Israeli territory,” the official revealed. “Using unmanned aircraft and together with accurate intelligence, we follow the operatives and know in which areas to look for the terrorist operatives, and then attack them.”
According to him, “the importance is the ability to react very quickly, a few minutes before the target disappears.” Lt. Col. E. also said that “most of the operatives who were eliminated came from mortar squads, but we also acted against rocket launchers. We saw activists coming to load rockets or start timers.”
