Their comments came after seven members of the Golani Brigade were killed by an rocket-propelled grenade (RPG-29) attack on their M113 armoured personnel carrier (APC) during Operation ‘Protective Edge’ against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.

Senior officers say they want far more Namer APCs, which have superior armour, to replace the thousands of M113s they currently have. They also say they want to equip more vehicles with the Trophy APS, which they credit with defending Merkava Mk 4 tanks against more than a dozen anti-tank missile strikes carried out by militants during Operation ‘Protective Edge’.
