Firing into the air
Rank: First Sergeant
Unit: Nahal Brigade
Area: Nablus area
period: 2002

We were in Nablus for two weeks, in what-do you-call-it, the Askars, we did an interesting thing in the Askars, we were . . . a scaring policy.

What does "Askars" mean?Askars are a kind of a refugee camp near Nablus, between Nablus and Balata, something like that, I don't remember exactly. In the Askars, we used to come up every night, for no reason. To fire a machine gun. To scare them. To show them that we were there.

What does that mean, firing where?Firing into the air, into space, into the night. Not into houses, nothing like that, but into the night.
