This Charge was just Waiting for Us

First sergent (RES)

We entered the suburbs of Shuja’eyya Village in Gaza where we were
to check a line of houses to make sure that everything is ok and there
is no risk to the staff or explosives left in the area.
Upon realizing that no one was there, the tension started fading away.
Then suddenly, one of the soldiers identified a group of gas tanks under
the staircase, to which many cables were attached. He immediately
called the company commander. The company commander understood
what this was- it was an explosive charge waiting for us to accidentally
move one of the cables, so that it would explode on us. We quickly left
the building and moved to the next one.
