An Israeli citizen entered the Gaza Strip with his vehicle yesterday (Sunday) - and managed to penetrate about a kilometer into the Strip before being arrested and returned to the territory of the state.
The driver managed to cross the fence line when he was driving a vehicle with a yellow license plate.
Security officials sharply criticized the Gaza Division, arguing that the serious incident indicates disorder at the border, gaps in observations and control of border crossings.
Also, the sources said that around the fence there is "war tourism", some of which is carried out under the auspices of the army and some independently, and it includes civilians who come to see soldiers, the Gaza Strip and sights from the battlefield.
It should be noted that the Directorate of the Seam Line and the Fence under the command of Brigadier General Eran Ofir, accompanied by engineering forces of the Southern Command and the Gaza Division, have been working on three major efforts since October 7. The first was to repair the fence that was damaged by dozens of penetration axes by Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and the mob Palestinian citizens. So far most of the fence has been repaired. The second effort includes the construction of a buffer space from the fence line to the first line of houses and obstacles.
Part of the effort includes the destruction of Palestinian houses that were previously used by the terrorist operatives for sniper positions, launching and anti-tank missiles, military bases, gathering intelligence and operating systems. Sources in the Southern Command claim that part of the engineering process in the field repeats past mistakes and it is required to upgrade the obstacle, the fence line and the buffer space in order to prevent terrorist incidents in the future. The first shekel is better security components. With a better concept.
Much has been said about the fact that after the attack on the Egyptian border (in which three fighters were murdered by an Egyptian terrorist police officer AB) General Nimrod Aloni who was the commander of the Gaza Division and was part of the same concept that failed in the Gaza Division, will present A new concept for border protection. This area is not clear, it has not been thoroughly agreed upon, so we continue to invest in more of the same as in the past as if we want to fail one more time."
