The operations in Rafah were basically meant to help progress with demolishing houses, to create distance between the residential area and the [border] line. The idea was that the further away the houses, the more difficult it would be to dig tunnels. The court had already placed some limitations on it. Usually, you don’t demolish a house immediately. You go in through another entrance, not the front door, so you don’t risk setting off an explosive charge. At that point, part of the wall has already been demolished. So next time, another part is demolished, and next time another. By then it’s already a building that’s marked for demolition, so it’s demolished. Gradually. Every time an operation went in, another bit of the house was demolished. There were a lot of house demolitions at that time. Lots of demolitions were suddenly approved after the APC incident (five soldiers were killed by a missile that hit an APC in Rafah). D-9 bulldozers took part in Operation Rainbow (in Rafah). The orders were to demolish a goat shed along with the goats. One commander told me how they’d demolished the shed with the animals rolling around on the ground.
