In the latest short video, shot from inside an IDF pillbox, a soldier says plaintively: “Israel, the year 2014, firebombs.” Then, firebombs hurled from below burst into flames just outside the pillbox window. “Israel,” he continues, bitterly – “keep tying us down! Keep tying us down, in the end we’ll burn!”
A video released by soldiers about two weeks earlier shows a similar situation in a guard position, with Arabs taunting the soldiers from up close.
Two years ago, a shocking video showed a helpless soldier inside a Border Police position at Shuafat, north of Jerusalem, who was under vicious attack by Arabs while other soldiers waited nearby and did nothing, under orders from above.
