17 Hostages Released, Prime Minister Tours Combat Zone
As 17 more hostages were released from Gaza and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toured the combat zone, IDF army dogs have been hard at work uncovering booby-trap explosives and weapons stockpiles since the start of the war. According to Arutz Sheva, these brave K-9 soldiers have already exposed approximately 50 booby-trapped explosive devices and dozens of weapons stockpiles.
Heroic Dogs Discover Explosives and Weapons
The Oketz (K-9) Unit fighters and dogs from the Marom Special Operations Brigade have been instrumental in locating dangerous explosives and weapons in Gaza. In one instance, they discovered explosives in a room at the Rantisi hospital, as well as a weapons stockpile. They also aided in locating the bodies of slain hostages Yehudit Weiss and Noa Marciano in the area of the al-Shifah Hospital.
Preventing Attacks on Israeli Forces
These incredible dogs have not only been helping uncover hidden threats, but they have also prevented potential harm to arriving forces. In a recent operation, one of the unit's dogs located a barrel of explosives that was set to harm Israeli soldiers.
Farewell to Four Fallen Heroes
Unfortunately, four dogs who fought alongside the troops were killed in combat while defending soldiers in Gaza. According to Arutz Sheva, these fallen heroes, named Mido, Taiga, Jack, and Ghandi, will be laid to rest in the unit's cemetery in accordance with protocol.
Our thoughts go out to these brave dogs and their handlers, who continue to risk their lives to protect the soldiers on the front lines.
