This is coolbert:
Thanks to the Avi Yaffe web site and the tip from Le Mont De Sisphye listen to the actual tactical combat communications from forty years ago the Israeli Bar Lev Line strong points as the attack by the Egyptian forces commences, that Yom Kippur/Ramadan war of 1973.
"Excerpts from original recordings from the 'Yom Kippur War, 1973 Recorded by Avi Yaffe at the 'Suez Canal' Bunkers."
During those radio transmissions when you hear in the background a weapon being cocked and fired, or detonations from artillery shells falling on target that is not make believe or "for the movies" type of stuff. Is for real!
That testimony of the Israeli soldier Danny describing the execution of surrendered Israeli troops must be understood within context. That Egyptian officer [a lieutenant] having something specific in mind when he asks the captured Israeli troops if anyone them had fought in '67 [that Six Day War of 1967].
Numbers of Egyptian troops [that exact number not clear, perhaps in the hundreds] having been shot dead during that Six Day War, the Egyptian with hands up, weapons thrown away. So are the allegations made. THE EGYPTIAN IN 1973 SEEKING REVENGE ON CAPTURED ISRAELI!
I can almost with 100 % certainty explain without justifying the shootings as occurred in 1967. Rapidly advancing Israeli armor columns [tanks] when encountering surrendering Egyptian troops just machine gunning them dead. Those tank crews not able to spare a crew member to guard the vanquished adversary, NOR can they just let them go. Only once course of action is possible!
Again, NOT to justify, but merely to explain the circumstances!
