(GoPro) Israeli Merkavas in Close Contact with Hamas Fighters

GoPro footage approved for release by the Israeli Defense Force captures a close-in gunfight between several Israeli Merkava main battle tanks and Hamas militants in the Gaza region. At several points in the video, you can see the second tank's Trophy System being triggered by incoming fire, which keeps the tank safe.


I could have sworn a bunch of angry dudes on Reddit, Twitter and our own comments section said that the Israeli Trophy System was useless. Seems pretty damn effective to me.
