Earlier in the day, Brig.-Gen. (reserves) Avigdor Kahalani, a war hero and Tank Corps commander, added tanks must not be drawn into the cities; where terrorists have a better vantage point, the ability of firing anti-tank rockets from rooftops or windows. He and other explain the tanks protect soldiers from outside the cities, firing from long-range and in the open areas, the soldiers, escorted by the tanks, provide cover to the tank crew from close up encounters with terrorists who may attempt to fire anti-tank rockets.
