Israeli Air Force Destroys Own Tank

Footage of the Israeli Air Force destroying one of its own Merkava IV main battle tanks. The weekend’s onslaught by Hamas took many Israeli outposts by surprise, permitting militants to capture many armored vehicles and tanks. The Merkava is considered by some to be one of the best main battle tanks in the world, and Israel would rather destroy captured tanks than see them fall into the hands of Hamas, Hezbollah, or the Iranian Revolutionary Gard Corps.
