The failed side of the IDF
The terrorist apparently entered Israel from Gaza near the Kerem Shalom crossing, he said, breaching a “smart fence” that warns of infiltration. The warning sounded, but was not dealt with. [...]I'm afraid they're right. That's why more alertness is badly needed, and dedication to ground defense.
Edry called on the IDF to “learn lessons” from the event. “We must not wake up in the morning feeling unprotected,” he said.
“There were serious failures here,” he added. “Residents here are waiting for the next round of fighting, and they are not happy with how the war ended. Everyone knows that even after Pillar of Defense the situation is going to get worse.”
