A year after the IDF's launch of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, the military on Tuesday released footage filmed on the battlefield by one of Israel's fallen soldiers.
The video was filmed from a portable GoPro camcorder attached to the helmet of Givati Brigade officer Major Benaya Sarel.
The undated recording shows troops positioning in the Khirbat Ahza'a area during the brigade's second deployment to the Gaza Strip in last year's operation.
Jerusalem native Sarel was killed on August 1 by a Hamas suicide bomber. He was 26-years-old. Sixty-seven IDF soldiers
and five Israeli civilians were killed during the 50-day-long war between Israel and Hamas, which ended on August 26, 2014. On the Palestinian side, more than 2,000 were reported dead in the conflict.
