The IDF on Monday released videos of the Israeli Air Force strike Sunday night on a hijacked Egyptian army armored vehicle that rammed the Israeli border fence and entered the country.

After attacking an Egyptian military base on the Israel-Gaza Strip-Egypt border and killing at least 16 soldiers, the terrorists commandeered two armored vehicles and drove toward the Kerem Shalom border crossing.

In the first film, the armored personnel carrier is visible in the cross-hairs as it is struck and debilitated by an IDF tank shell. The crippled vehicle then grinds to a halt in the middle of the road.

The second video appears to show the burning wreckage of the disabled vehicle after the airstrike.
