Israeli Merkava 4 Went Missing When Tank Commander Was In Bathroom

An Israeli tank commander briefly lost his Merkava 4 battle tank while he was in the bathroom, the Israeli media reported on January 15.

It appeared that the battle tank rolled 600 meters down a hill out of control and crossed a main highway in southern Israel after the crew fell asleep inside it. The incident reportedly took place over the past week, during a tank commanders course near the Armored Corps training base.

“The crew commander had gotten out of the tank to go to the bathroom, and when he returned he saw that his Merkava 4 tank was missing. It was located only after a few minutes, on the other side of Route 40,” Haaretz reports.

A preliminary investigation of the incident found that the crew of combat soldiers had fallen asleep and didn’t notice the tank was rolling away.

“This is an unusual safety incident that will be investigated and from which lessons will be learned in order to prevent the recurrence of similar cases in the future,” the military said in a statement on the issue.

Security incidents involving Israeli soldiers occur on a cosntant basis. Some of them even cause casualties. For example in April, one soldier was killed and three others were injured when a shell caught on fire inside a tank along the Egyptian border.

    One of the Jew’s genetic deficiencies from inbreeding is reportedly low spatial IQs. This in conjunction with physical deficiencies also resulting from inbreeding is said to be why Israelis due poorly in the Olympics. And may account for the IDF mishaps.

    • opereta

      Mmmmmmm….I coincide fully with your diagnosis !!

    • Emanual Macron

      you seem to have hit it all on the head. So what in god’s good earth skullfuckery do you suffer from?

      • RichardD

        Your comment doesn’t make sense.

    • iosongasingsing

      From what do you deduce this? In America, the Ashkenazis pass the highest-rated intelligence tests compared to the African-Americans, and the noble Watson has gone as a racist for saying it.

      • RichardD

        “the study points out: the scores for “visual-spatial” were particularly low,”

        – Ashkenazi Jews rank smartest in world –

      • Zionism = EVIL

        IQ tests are a hoax and even psychiatrists now reject them. It is just another fake measure and fake narrative to impose “superiority”. If the hooked nosed vermin were so smart how come they such low EQ to be hated by the whole world?

    • Hisham Saber

      The crew fell asleep in their tank, huh. Great, and they want to take on Hezbollah, and even the Syrian Arab Army and IRGC and Iraqi Hezbollah and PMU’s!?

      It would be a turkey shoot. The state of Israel is a paper tiger, basking under her idiot savant, the U.S. of A.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Todays IDF is weaker than a spiders web, that is why it is baffling why Syria has not retaliated.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The hooked vermin today are also totally unfit for war as the IDF has been only good at bombing civilians and beating up unarmed Arab women and children. In a real war these scum will run.

  • ColinNZ

    It would seem they were “chosen” to receive the brains of rocking horses.

  • stary ujo

    All extraordinary incident in the army in the world is result lack of discipline ,everywhere ! hi..

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      Nothing to do with lack of discipline, just a simple cockup, happens in every army by every rank.

  • FlorianGeyer

    It is ‘Highly Likely’ that Iran delivered a sleeping gas via Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. The Hezbollah special forces then used a tunnel to enter Israel and committed a gas attack on the innocent Israeli soldiers who were sleeping in their little tank after a long day of driving around in ever decreasing circles whilst chasing Palestinian infants.

    The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompepotimus flew immediately to Israel from an AIPAC rally in the USA withought even taking time to have a Bathroom Break. He has given Nutty Yahoo another 500 million USD from the US Infrastructure Renewal Fund , to fight the menace of sleeping gas weapons of mass destruction made in in Iran.

    • Hisham Saber

      Most beautifully said Florian. I do enjoy your posts

    • Jakke1899

      Mmmm…forcing gas into a confined space full of jews?!? Didn’t someone else try this a couple of decades ago?

      • FlorianGeyer

        Mmmm, NO :)

  • xTheWarrior22

    Ahahaa, Zionists are not laughing now. They’re unscrupulously and cowards and can kill only innocnet civilians. Remember one Zionist soldier who tried to kick a tyre but missed it and fell on the floor. Nothing specials for those corrupt mass murderes

      • James

        Oh man that is some funny shit!! They really lack a lot of brains to think they can take down a huge tire like that. Did they never have much outside play when they were growing up or are they just fools?

        • Valerianus Maximus

          Street play has been in short supply for them ever since the Germans closed down the Warsaw Ghetto.

          • Hisham Saber

            Brilliant, lmao.

        • xTheWarrior22

          Maybe they were all sucking to Netanyahu, Liebermann & Rothschild. That’d be realistic answer :)

      • Luke Hemmming

        OMG that was farkin funny. What a bunch of idiots. Duh Just push the tyre down from the side with your hands FFS. Easy as. It wasn’t going that fast.

    • Jens Holm

      Very high level. How many burned a finger lighting cigarettes ? How many burned 2.

      I wonr defend the many killed by Israelians, but many of them makes them selves in a frontzone, where they know, they will get hurt and some a lot.

      More like Israeliens are more and more integrated with the rest of You comming from Semmi and Mount Ararat. Those jews are just a more updated version learning to learn by birth seldom pujtting themselves in distress.

  • jako

    And if whole division takes shit in the same time ?
    That will be
    “tanks rolled 600 meters down a hill out of control and crossed”
    border and invaded Lebanon….soldiers flowed the tanks…
    Since Israeli’s are full of shit …that is something to be expected

    • Jens Holm

      Its no problem if they have tank units fighting in front of them and they are replacements behind the enemy line.

      I might be wrong and out of context, but Israeleiens organize themselves in Brigades and not divisions.

      • Hisham Saber

        Yup, you go right ahead and offer all kinds of apologies to the IDF child killers. All you want, go ahead. Fact of the matter is that Israel is a paper tiger that can be taken easily today. The days of Arab ‘ divisions ‘ of 67′ and 73’ are over, Hezbollah , Syrian Arab Army, IRGC , Iraqi Hezbollah, Iraqi PMU’s are operated in squads and brigades too. But the incompetent Israeli’s are just that, highly incompetent hiding behind their idiot savant , the U.S.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Replying to this retard is a waste of time. 99.9% of his posts are unintelligible and 100% idiotic rambling rants :)

  • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

    Budget cutting the parking brakes?

  • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

    And relax everyone, its just a mistake/cockup, thats it, nothing more, nothing less.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Yes, I suppose the Israel tank commander gets used to his regular cockups in the Israeli military.

      • Jens Holm

        You can find that in all forces around the world. Few statistics about it. Once Russians were famous for cheeting their recuits bad, but they seemes to have improved some.

  • Garga

    Pity that the “driver” caught the tank in time, otherwise the tank would join it’s crew for a nice and looong nap:

    The above mentioned tank was returning from a fierce battle against the worse kind of terrorist.

    I can’t sleep in a car. Seriously, how can they sleep in a freaking tank? Maybe if I was as stoned as they were I could. I got to get myself some of that $hit!

    • Jens Holm

      It rtapported 1000s of times people can sleep under heavy bombatrments even the ground is trembling again and again.

      And Yes, soldiers has to sleep and regain too. Good plans for warfare makes the first line of soldiers being replaced by a semilar after some days and if they have – a third group. The the first group has regained and also has replementts for lost soldiers, fuel, food, water and ammo.

      Nothing abnormal in people sleeps in tanks as well. They simply have to sooner or later.

      And Israelians do have accidents as this one too. Its rapported from all over the world and in the civile life too. People do get tired even being busdrivers in mountains and as pilots in airplanes.

      Sometimes the rules for it is not kept. Our police see many big trucks, where the drivers are almost a sleep or falls a sleep even they have a timer telling them to rest 11 hours and sleep 7-8 and eat well and visit a toilet having time for it. And why: Well as for the soldiers, the plans makes not enough space for it as well as You have stgupidists not even putting needed guards out against RPGs.

      • Garga

        Jensy, you say a timer controls your truck drivers bowel movement too?
        I thought only Sheldon does that.

        You know what’s a bigger pity? Someone who doesn’t understand humor and try to explain.

    • Hisham Saber

      ‘ A picture has a thousand words, and meanings’. Did you know that the Merkava’s (The Chariot of God) were no longer produced after the embarrassing debacle against Hezbollah in 2006. The Israeli IDF attacked Lebanon with 75,000 troops and two armored battalions against roughly 4500 Hezbollah regulars , not their special forces or commandos, who were stationed north of the Litani Line in Lebanon. The Israeli’s had 44 Merkava’s totally destroyed, out of a total of 400 involved, yet they couldn’t capture not even one border village and hold it. Not even the highly touted IDF Golani Brigades could make any headway at all, as they were effectively surrounded and came very close to annihilation. Now imagine if Hezbollah had the brunt, special forces and its commandos and special units at the border at the time. It would have been a total rout of the IDF all the way to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

    • Jakke1899

      This is of course all Iran’s fault, it is even rumoured ayatollah Khomeini was seen fleeing the scene, escorted by Hezbollah ninja’s! Nutty Yahoo will be presenting evidence of this very shortly to the UNSC! Expect more sanctions coming your way!

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    Hahahaha too funny, and these people think they can take on hezb?

    • xTheWarrior22

      Hezbollah would melt them. Without the US IDF would be nothing than a fart

      • Hisham Saber

        Even the U.S. wouldn’t be able to save Israel from its impending doom. The U.S. cant even subdue guys on bicycles and motorcycles, lightly armed with AK-47’s and RPG’s, and maybe a few IED’s for 18 years now in Afghanistan. I mean the Taliban are wearing bedsheets and beach sandals for crying out loud . And the Taliban are kicking major ass as of late, and every year it seems.

        • xTheWarrior22

          Agreed. I don’t see an ending of the war in Afghanistan anytime soon, unless Russia arrives. They would annihilate the Taliban and the few isis shithole pockets. Maybe the Taliban could apply for asylum in the white house then?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Well they tried, here is a photo of Merkeva meets Hezbollah first generation Kornet at Bint Jbeil South Lebanon.

    I would expect nothing less from the “most moral army in the world” than to lose control of their bowels and their tanks at the same time. :-D

    • Hisham Saber

      Beautiful.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Good to see Russian media reporting with empathy about accidents in IDF. Take more care out there.

  • Bob

    Conscripts doing conscript stuff.

  • Lena Jones

    The most moral army? No, the most moronic.

  • R PLobo

    rabble.

  • Sinbad2

    Most of the IDF are western kids who join up for the glory of shooting a rock throwing child.
    When they get back to Brooklyn all the Jewish girls think they are heroes, and bankers shove hundred dollar bills in their hand.

    • Hisham Saber

      By per capita ratio, Israel, Tel Aviv to be precise, holds the largest annual LGBQT parades in the world. A lot of them end up in the pathetic IDF.
