Aftermath of Two Israeli Soldiers That Were Hit by Mine

Aftermath video shows an apparent mine strike on the Israeli side of the Lebanon-Israel border just south of the Lebanese town of Aita Al-Sha’b. The incident occurred on 3/21/2023.


From what reports say, Israeli Defense Force soldiers were building a wall to help protect against HAMAS and Hezbollah attacks when two Israeli soldiers drove over a mine in their US-made HMMWV. The soldiers were critically wounded and brought to the hospital using a Merkava 4 main battle tank. The two soldiers you can hear in the background are expected to survive. IDF press release states they are investigating how a mine got to where it was planted.


For those curious, the Israeli Merkava 4 main battle tank, also known as “The Chariot” in English, has a crew of 4 and can carry infantry inside. The Merkava has a famous design that places the engine at the front part of the tank, while most modern tanks put their engines in the rear. The Merkava is also known to have different types of variants to the tank, like the tankbulance. This variant has space for two stretchers and medical equipment, its 120mm smoothbore cannon, and mounted machine guns with some ammunition for both. However, since this Tanbulance is armed, it is not given the same protection as other ambulances under the Geneva Convention.
