It seems that the IDF may have accidentally left an armored personnel carrier (APC) on the side of the road in the hullabaloo of tensions with Gaza on Tuesday morning.

The APC rolled off the tow truck carrying it as it drove down Route 4.

Police blocked one lane of the road next to the Emunim intersection, outside the city of Ashdod. The carrier was apparently on its way to the South.

A tow truck carrying the APCs was seen just in front of the lone carrier, also on the side of the road.



Following the incident, the Israel Police said that at this stage, "the traffic police are in the area and are handling the incident without injuries."

"One lane has been blocked and there is traffic congestion," the police spokesman said. "Drivers are urged to act cautiously and obey the instructions of the policemen at the checkpoint."

Overnight, 60 rockets were shot into southern Israel from Gaza. The IDF also struck dozens of targets in response to the rocket fire, as well as in response to a long-range rocket that hit and destroyed a home in Moshav Mishmeret in central Israel on Monday.

Seven members of one family, including two toddlers, were injured, as well as a neighboring child.
