Al-Jazeera, citing other Israeli media sources, said that the ‘security incident’ refers to a “very tight ambush”, and that “it took (the Israeli army) hours to transfer the dead and wounded.
Israeli media suggest that the Israeli army statement could take place at 6 am Palestine time.
This is not the first time that a major ambush has taken place since the start of the war, with Resistance attacks in Shejayah, Maghazi and other areas that have killed and wounded hundreds of soldiers.
The language that is being used this time around, however, suggests that the Palestinian Resistance attack is wider in both scope and intensity.
