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.

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.
