Last Friday, a 15 year old was shot and killed at the #Gaza security fence. What killed Maysara Abushlov was his attempt to infiltrate into Israel. This is the video of Palestinians recovering his body shortly after he was shot in the northern Gaza Strip. #Israel

Update on a border unit member: Mohammed al-Essawei was featured in an @AP report about victims of IDF gunfire. I revealed he was an active border unit member - a detail the @AP missed. Recently, I uncovered al-Essawei was part of a mass infiltration into #Israel.

Al-Essawei was involved in infiltrating the security fence and that's what eventually got him shot. An important detail missed by the @AP. (https://bit.ly/2RXPNUu ) My original story and others like this at http://groundbrief.substack.com/welcome  sign up & if you like it, become a member.

After al-Essawei returns to the Gaza side of the security fence. We hear the gas canister round launch from the Merkava and its effect.

Here we see al-Essawei's point of view during the infiltration. The young man, with a black shirt, that holds his hand up to the left of al-Essawei a few seconds into the video was later killed by IDF gunfire.

The infiltration occurred in the summer at the #Gaza border. What's interesting is the infiltration was recorded from different angles. We see the mass infiltration occur and an IDF tank arrive at the scene. Note the Merkava fire a smoke round.
