The army also said the Windbreaker tank defense system has proven itself during the current engagement. At least four tanks of senior commanders were saved by the Windbreaker system – a technological accomplishment no less significant than the Iron Dome missile defense system, Army Radio reported.

  1. God Almighty bless, Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanjahu. Israel holds a strong defense with the bravest and best educated soldiers in the world. You defeat your evil enemies and with all your knowledge of living daily with those evil enemies. Save the world from this evilness. Amen

  2. God is on the side of the Israelis!!! Hamas has sent over 1,705 rockets with the intent of murdering children by the 1,000s. They are just poor shots. Israel protects itself with precision firing of missiles at those firing these rockets making sure they hit their target and not kill civilians! FACT! The only problem is, these Hamas cowards strap children onto their backs and place their rockets in the homes of children for the exact purpose for liberals to blame Israel for killing babies! FACT! Israel is saving children by wiping Hamas off the face of the earth!!!!!!!!!!! ISRAEL, GOD CHOSEN PEOPLE!!
