Which team? The undercover unit. The working assumption was that you could only get into the village undercover, not openly. It was midday. It very quickly developed into the undercover guys shooting at that terrorist and his friend. One was killed and the other was seriously wounded. The shooting also killed an Israeli kid, an Israeli Arab from Rahat.
Did the undercover agents get hit? No, not at all. I guess the goal was to arrest the guy, on one hand. On the other hand, maybe that was only half serious, because in all the undercover missions I’ve heard about, only once was anyone ever arrested. Every time they were involved, it ended in killing. I’m almost sure there were no shots fired at them, I think there was no time for that. They’re running and there’s shooting. Would there be time to raise a weapon? Did they get a chance to pick up a weapon or not? I don’t know. I think that the rules of engagement allowed [the agents] to shoot if [the Palestinians] were armed, they didn’t even have to wait for any danger in order to shoot. I saw them unloading. The second I got there was after the shooting, but very soon afterwards.
