How he did it: Pointed his shoulder held video camera at an IDF tank while standing in the middle of a group of terrorists...
Watch how it happened!

A Hamas propagandist gets killed? Led me shed a tear.

Hey, it's an honest mistake in the fog of war.

Hope the tank crew doesn't feel too bad about it.

DUDE...........YOU CAN PAUSE IT RIGHT AT THE END AND CATCH THE ROUND INCOMMING...

I saw it coming in without slowing it down/pausing it. Anyone else?

Ok, never was a bee-bee stacker. But could some explain what I saw in the last split second. What was that cloud of dust? Was that a timed fuse on the shell? Or did I miss seeing it hit something and explode right in front of the camera man?

Thanks

That was the artillery round exploding slightly before it reached its target. It was filled with flachettes, apparently.

Max

my guess would be a timed fuse

Thanks gents. Not very familiar with the different types of shells used in tanks. Am familiar with both timed fuses and know of fletchets. But didn't know the different types of delivery platforms. Suppose that would be one mean way to take out personal for a short distance and yet not do much harm to buildings. Very tactical use of fletchets.
