The driver of the bus carrying IDF soldiers that was hit by an anti-tank missile fired by Hamas is reported to have lied to military police and bypassed IDF checkpoints to enter the Black Arrow site, Walla!News reported.
According to Walla!, military police officers closed the site following orders signed by Southern Command Head Maj.-Gen. Hertzi Halevi over concerns that Hamas would carry out a sniper or anti-tank missile attack.
Quoting military sources, Walla! said that the bus was able to bypass the blockade by telling the officers that the soldiers in the bus were part of an elite unit which had come to reinforce troops in the area.
Shortly after the military policemen granted the bus access it was hit by a Kornet anti-tank missile.
