"We walked into the ... community, and were engaged by terrorists within the first few minutes..." -Israeli soldier

[Breaking Christian News] During a recent episode of "The Israel Guys" podcast, host Josiah Hilton described a miracle that took place among the Israeli reserve troops. (Screengrab image)

"I want to read a story that was actually sent to me here in Israel by a friend," said Josiah. "A miracle story from one of the soldiers who went down to the Gaza border and fought in one of these communities that was taken over by terrorists."

Josiah read the soldier's story from his cell phone:

"It's been a couple of weeks but I have some time now and I want to write about a ... miracle that happened to me during those first few days of Hell.

My unit was called in on Shabbat morning ... no official order, nothing. Our brigade commander saw that the south needed a battalion to respond ASAP and he told us to come. Four hours later we got on Humvees and headed straight for Kfar Aza (one of the communities down by Gaza).

Our weapons had been handed to us on the spot. We had never shot them, didn't even have time to clean them. We had no idea if they worked, and the sights were definitely not zeroed-in. The weapons in the reserve units are notorious for being unreliable and usually don't even shoot properly before a good clean, or in some cases a visit to the armory. That's how we went into combat.

We walked into the ... community, and were engaged by terrorists within the first few minutes of walking. A few minutes later, we encountered one hiding in the bush with an AK-47 waiting to ambush us. My rifle worked perfectly—firing every shot, cycling every round, hitting what I was aiming at. Not one single jam. I thanked Hashem (God) for giving me a rifle that worked right off the bat.

After three days of fighting, I had learned to rely on my rifle completely.

On Tuesday night, we finished clearing Kfar Aza, were switched out by another battalion, and were sent up to a base so we could rest, shower and finally clean and check our weapons.

We went to the range—immediately I got a jam. Another round, another jam and another. They were getting worse. I had to start taking out my pliers and utility knife to clear them. We ended up having to take it to the armory so they could switch out ALL the internal parts, to basically rebuild it from the inside.

Guys, the gun just didn't work, it was a broken rifle!

It was broken from the moment it was handed to me on Shabbat morning. But for me, for those few days in Kfar Aza, it had worked to perfection, so we could do what we needed to do.

I heard similar stories from many other soldiers in our battalion. I look forward to the day when I can stand in my ... synagogue on Shabbat and [thank God] for this miracle and the countless others that Hashem has performed for us." Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
