Matan: I served as an officer in the Givati Brigade reconnaissance unit. In 2009 in Gaza, my unit took over the home of a known Hamas leader. In the master bedroom, hidden in a special compartment in the clothes cabinet, we found grenade launchers, mortar shells, hand guns, rifles, hand grenades, army vests, two-way radios, cell-phones and thousands of bullets. It was near a baby crib.
Hidden in his backyard we found two rocket launchers pointing towards Israel and rockets next to them on the ground. In the corner was a hut filled with rockets, explosive devices, fertilizers used for preparing explosives and Arabic manuals for assembling and launching rockets. It’s almost impossible to think that all this was found in a residential home. Matan was one of 13 IDF soldiers on StandWithUs’ “Israeli Soldiers Stories” tour. (Jspace)
