Private Gali Badhani, was on her first guard shift since completing the lookout observer course when she spotted a Hamas terrorist loading his gun and taking aim against Israeli forces near Gaza in the Kissufim in the Negev.
“At around 8pn I started my first shift…After an hour, forces circling the field told me that they were overseeing work (in the area) and asked that I scour the area for them,” she said.
“I started scouring the area and I saw an armed man pointing his gun eastward where the work was going on. I got on the walkie-talkie and warned them. At the same moment, the gunshots started,” the Petah Tikva resident recalled.
“We alerted the war room and then I went on to direct the tank that hit the outpost.”
