Another oversight exposed:
An entire battalion of reservists, that was trained to deal with a scenario of terrorist infiltration, arrived quickly in southern Israel during the Hamas attack on October 7, but was delayed for about 12 hours because the key to its armory was missing, Channel 12 News reporter Tamir Steinman reported on Wednesday.
- According to the report, the battalion received an emergency call-up and the soldiers quickly showed up at 11:00 a.m., full of motivation, but they encountered a problem that prevented them from attacking – the keys to the armory at the base were nowhere to be found.
The frustrated soldiers waited for 12 hours and said that the battalion commander did not make a decision that would allow the armory to be breached due to the emergency situation that was created.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in response:
“After the war is over, a detailed investigation will be conducted in order to clarify the details.”
