An anti-tank missile was fired at an IDF tank during routine activity in the southern Gaza Strip a short while ago. For the first time during operational activity, the Trophy (ASPRO-A) system, also known as the “Windbreaker”, designed to actively protect against anti-tank missiles, identified, alerted and intercepted the missile.

Shortly afterwards, IDF soldiers identified several terrorists in the area and fired in their direction, identifying a hit.

The IDF holds Hamas solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
