'Miracle' Kept 50 IDF Soldiers From Being Killed by Hamas Missile

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff

Hamas terrorists operating on the edges of the Gaza Strip on Monday fired an anti-tank missile at a passenger bus driving on the Israeli side of the border.

Just minutes earlier, the bus, which had no military markings, had dropped off some 50 Israeli soldiers at a gathering point ahead of expected operations against the Palestinian terror group.

Two people were wounded in the strike, which can be seen in the video above–the 25-year-old Arab bus driver and a 19-year-old IDF soldier who was standing near the bus when it was hit. The soldier was initially listed in critical condition, but successfully underwent emergency surgery and is not being monitored in Intensive Care.

According to numerous online reports, the driver, whose injuries were not life-threatening, told doctors at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva that it was a "miracle" that the soldiers on his bus were not killed, and that the incident proves that "God loves the Jews."
