War Story

Dekal, a soldier who survived the terrorist attack shares:
"My name is Dekal, an observer from the military base in Kissufim. I came to my last shift on Saturday, one of my last days as a soldier in the IDF. In my worst dreams, I did not imagine such a thing.
I got up for a shift at 4 AM, a shift that turned out to be a nightmare. I never thought in my life that I would see something like this. I did my best until my main camera was shot. Everything looked normal in the area, farmers, shepherds, and children playing in their streets, then a boom and alarm. Аll the "innocent" farmers who for two years would come to their agricultural field every day just started to run to the fence and break it down. Along with them, hundreds of bikers with RPGs, vans, tractors, bulldozers, terrorists with backpacks containing missiles and heavy ammunition and crazy-looking eyes, devil's eyes.
I announced on the internal radio "Invasion, invasion". I never thought I'd say that word on the radio. We all fought as best we could. The 51st Battalion, whom I highly appreciate did everything to protect us. Get out of bed with their underwear on and weapons.
Yes, the terrorists surprised us and we were not ready for it.
Half and maybe more of the regular force are at home due to the holiday and the weekend and no intelligence information about the invasion.
Two minutes before we sang songs together, the night before I sat until the late hours of the night with my fighter friends and today some of them are gone.
I cared for the wounded while terrorists roamed my base, my second home and murdered my friends.
The night has come, darkness, 7 last warriors left alive and protect the door of the camera room. "The terrorists on the roof of the building", if you don't send us more forces now we will die." After a few minutes of praying to God, friendly forces arrived. The person we were all waiting for came to help and organized a rescue operation for us. The road from the base to the bus is a road that will forever remain in my mind, the whole base is corpses, fireworks in the sky and a bunch of people that protect you until you get to the bus. You just close your eyes, run and pray. I have been preparing for this moment for two years but to be honest, nothing can prepare you for something like this. Crazy noise, blood everywhere, while you're being told that your friend is haunted, you have to dress up and do everything so that the morale among the people won't drop, that hope remains because that's all there was. 16 hours locked in a small room with a lot of hope and prayers.
What a miracle. This was the terrible end of two amazing years.
Now please pray for the peace of the soldiers. Let's get home safely.'
