Theft incident from IOF base part of setbacks, failure: Israeli media
Israeli media say the recent theft incident from an Israeli occupation army base in the occupied Syrian Golan turned the IOF into "a laughing stock."
Or Heller, Israeli Channel 13 military affairs correspondent, considered on Sunday that the incident of weapons theft from an Israeli occupation army base in the occupied Syrian Golan comprises a series of setbacks and failures.
Heller indicated that in recent years, millions have been invested in securing Israeli occupation forces (IOF) bases against theft, adding that the recent incident made the IOF "a laughing stock."
The Israeli correspondent said it is unreasonable for an army to allegedly attack "Iranian weapons convoys on Iraq's borders," according to foreign reports, yet be mocked inside "Israel", stressing that there is a real blow to the entire Israeli occupation army in the north, south, and in all bases.
In the same context, Israeli Channel 12 Palestinian territories affairs correspondent considered that the theft incident of the Israeli occupation army base in the north embarrassed all the protection formations of the bases, claiming that only ammunition was stolen.
The correspondent explained that the Israeli occupation army invested in a giant project and was able to protect 90% of the weapons depots using advanced means, claiming that it is very difficult to steal weapons, but stealing ammunition is easier, which is also a violation of red lines.
On his part turn, the Israeli Channel 12 correspondent in the north said the damage is much greater than just stolen ammunition, as the damage hit the awareness, with this being yet another successful infiltration of an Israeli occupation army base.
Israeli media reported on Saturday that the Israeli occupation forces, in cooperation with the occupation's police and the general security services, are investigating the disappearance of more than 70,000 bullets and 70 grenades from "Tel Aviv's" military base in the occupied Syrian Golan.
An initial IOF probe found that some 73,000 5.56 mm bullets were missing from the military base, as well as 72 grenades designed to be launched from an M-203 grenade launcher mounted under the barrel of an assault rifle.
This comes less than a month after a similar incident saw some 30,000 bullets going missing from a base in southern occupied Palestine.
The Israeli occupation fears that stolen munition and weapons would be used in resistance operations carried out across the occupied West Bank.
According to Makan, the Israeli occupation forces are carrying out search operations in the area where the equipment went missing in search of the munition, though nothing has been reported to be found yet.
The occupation's main concern is that the munition makes it to somewhere such as Jenin or Nablus, where there has been increased violence against Palestinians.
Another incident of the sort took place on January 3, 2021. Israeli media reported at the time that more than 93,000 bullet rounds were taken from an IOF base in Al-Naqab, which marked the largest incident of the sort.
