If it is found to be true that a ground-to-air attack was launched at an Israeli helicopter participating in operations over Gaza, the ramifications could be significant.
The Jerusalem Post has reported that :”On Thursday, a helicopter was almost hit by what appeared to be a projectile fired from Gaza. OC IAF Maj.-Gen. Elazar Shkedy has assembled a team of aviation and missile experts to study the incident and try to determine whether there was a projectile – and if so, what exactly it was. Officials said the helicopter pilots had not noticed anything out of the ordinary, but televised footage of the incident showed a trail of smoke passing fairly close to a helicopter that participated in IDF operations in Gaza on Thursday”.
