Hamas terrorists wore correct IDF uniforms to confuse troops

IDF troops delayed opening fire at terrorists who tried to infiltrate Israel at first, trying to avoid 'friendly fire' incident.

The Hamas terrorists who infiltrated Israel on Monday morning were wearing standard and correct IDF uniforms, an investigation into the incident found.



The terrorists, 9 of which had been killed, were carrying army bullet-proof vests, wore IDF boots with rubber bands to keep pants from snagging at anything, as well as helmets with camouflage covers very similar to the ones used by the army.

The terrorists crossed the border fence from Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip and came across an IDF force near kibbutz Nir Am.


Observation units identified the terrorists in the bushes, but the army did not open fire at them at first because they were wearing correct IDF uniforms, and the troops feared these were IDF soldiers, since many different units operate in the area.


The troops were ordered to open fire only after the terrorists started firing at them with AK-47s.


Several of the terrorists tried to run back into the Strip, but nine of them were shot down from the air.
