Trigger-happy IDF Paratroopers Opened Fire On Israeli Civilian Airplane

Click to see full-size image

On August 21st, soldiers from Israel’s Defense Forces (IDF) opened fire on an Israeli crop-dusting airplane, mistaking it for an enemy aircraft encroaching the airspace above the Golan Heights.

The Golan Heights is still considered an occupied area by the UN, as well as every country apart from Israel itself and the US.

“Today, the paratroopers of the 101st Battalion in the center of the Golan Heights opened fire on a civilian Israeli plane, after mistakenly thinking it was a hostile Syrian aircraft that had invaded Israel. The plane caught several bullets. The pilot is safe. It could have ended very badly.”

The trigger-happy Israeli soldiers were simply protecting their occupied territory, and didn’t even consider it could just be a civilian aircraft and simply opened fire.

“IDF troops operating on the Golan Heights spotted a plane that they suspected of being an enemy aircraft that infiltrated from Syrian territory and represented a real threat, and therefore they opened fire at it. Once they realized it was a civilian Israeli aircraft, they stopped shooting,” the military said in a statement.

According to Israeli media, Crop-dusting flights are a relatively common occurrence in the largely agricultural area, which has also seen several cases of unmanned aerial vehicles from Syria entering the airspace above.

Initially, the pilot thought he had simply hit a bird, but then discovered he was losing fuel, so he landed in the Mahanaim airfield near Rosh Pina, thinking the shot had been fired from Syria.

A quick investigation determined that they had in fact been fired by soldiers from the IDF’s Paratroopers Brigade.

“As a part of defending the area against infiltrating aircraft, troops are expected to identify and monitor suspicious craft. But this was a serious incident that is being investigated. Lessons will be learned,” the army said.

Guess they skipped the identifying part, as well as the monitoring one. They simply jumped straight to shooting.

It is good that Israel attempts to predominantly use unmanned vehicles, since examples such as these are commonplace.

In January, an Israel Defense Forces tank rolled 600 meters down a hill out of control and crossed a main highway in southern Israel after the crew fell asleep inside the tank.

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.

The IDF spokesman confirmed the details of the incident and said no one was hurt. “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 army added in a statement.

There was nobody hurt in this occasion, but in April 2018, a 20-year-old Israeli soldier died of smoke inhalation after a tank shell caught fire inside an IDF tank. Three other soldiers were injured, with inhaling smoke and suffering burns.

Even earlier, in 2012, a tank ran over an IDF soldier by accident.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Besides being cowardly savages, the Zionist scum are shit scared of dying as they can only beat up unarmed Palestinian women and children and steal their lands. As the Americunt and Zionist fanned Wahhabi terror in Syria comes to an end these ugly Zionist scum will get more jumpy and see Iran and Hezbollah under their beds 24/7.

    • Lena Jones

      They already do “see Iran and Hezbollah under their beds 24/7”. Been this way since they lost to Hezbollah in 2006, but it’s only recently that the veil of ‘jewish power’ in the Levant has been snapped off the coward criminal jew face. Now the world sees the jewish bluff; sees their fatal weakness in the mid east.

  • Saso Mange

    Pussie soldiers. They fire at anything which moves, fear controls them. Well done Zionists, the indoctrination process well done.

  • FlorianGeyer

    I suppose that CNN will soon report that :- ‘ Assad warplane that was attempting to spray noxious chemicals over IDF heroes was turned away by gunfire from brave IDF soldiers’. :)

  • hvaiallverden

    Again, I have to give you the truth, because drakness is coming.

    What really pisses me of in this days where the conter psyops are ravagin the internet and people whom are deeply ignorant about history, dont even know what they read, and why they read it, and to an old timers, I have nothing left than cold hard rage, the only force that can fight back the propaganda we all read this days.
    And again I have to correct some of the HasbaRats and those that claim they know the bible, do you, really. This little humble rants goes to some Annons over at UnzR and this persons insane babbeling about Jesus and what Christianity is acording to this lunaTick, first, just the name Jesus, again, this isnt even semitic both the Hebrews and the Palestinians/etc, are semitic language people, and it incl their writing, and the letter J, dont exist in the Semitic writing, nor to the word Jews, and the expamples you read, comes from another highe religios scam, the Schoienfield Bible, that one should be burned where ever you find it, its an bizzare faking of the initial teaching and the story of Isus, the Quran is much more truthfull, and then again I have to give you the bloody facts.

    This 2 links have the truth about Isus witch was NOT a Jew and the truth about the Khazars.
    Can you handle it, I am not shure anymore. In an post-factual world, where emotions rule and lies have total control.
    When you read this, never forget whom is behind this war on our consciousness and belifs.
    To South F. time is closing in, something hughe is coming, I dont even know for shure, dont even know if I will see it, let to live long enough, by been silenced, they are scared, an a cornered animal is the most dangerous and unpredictable entity you/we can encounter.
    Just look at the Imperial banana republic, some points at Trump, I point of thos that owns the Swenatwhores and have them by their balls, Trump is just an bitch, an idiot put in charge, when it was the DemonCrauts that have started basically all the wars, never ever forget that.
    I knew about Trump & Co, for over 30 years, in the beginning I didnt belive, now, I know, the purge is coming.

    Follow the mooney, and above all, Cui Bono.
    Its not rocket science, its about having the balls to do the right thing.
    Be the light.

    peace

  • Icarus Tanović

    Let’s asume that IDF is covering something…what would it be? Spraying biological-chemical stuff on Syria, or wait a second it could be that some brave Syrian solider open fire on IDF’s spy plane disguised as agricultural one? How about this one?
