    An Israeli Apache helicopter flies over the border between Israel and the northern Gaza ***** November 11, 2012. An Israeli air strike killed a Palestinian militant in the Hamas-governed Gaza ***** on Sunday as a surge in cross-border violence entered its second day, local officials said. Islamic Jihad said it had fired 70 short-range rockets and mortar bombs across the border since Saturday, salvoes which drove Israeli residents to blast shelters. At least one Israeli, in the town of Sderot, was wounded, ambulance workers said. *******/Amir Cohen

    Israeli tanks stand in position overlooking a Syrian village from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights November 12, 2012. Israel's army fired tank shells into Syria on Monday and scored "direct hits" in response to a Syrian mortar shell that struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli military said in a statement. *******/Avihu Shapira

    An Israeli tank in a firing position in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights overlooking the Syrian village of Bariqa, Monday, Nov. 12, 2012. The Israeli military says "Syrian mobile artillery" was hit after responding to stray mortar fire from its northern neighbor. The incident marked the second straight day that Israel has responded to fire from Syria that does not appear to be aimed at Israeli targets, nonetheless Israel has promised a tough response if the fire continues.

    Good looking vehichle there! What is its name? Is it a surveillance vehicle? Because I only see cameras and such.

    Does it have any weak points against enemy infantry?

    Cheers

    Its name is [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Guardium [/FONT][/COLOR](see the caption at the beginning of the post).

    No, it's virtually indestructible.

    Was the Guardium constructed with any US funds or strictly Israeli engineered?

    An Israeli tank manoeuvres close to the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights November 13, 2012. Israel's army fired tank shells into Syria on Monday and scored "direct hits" in response to a Syrian mortar shell that struck the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli military said in a statement. It was the second time in as many days that Israel had fired across the disengagement line drawn at the end of a war in 1973, underscoring international fears that Syria's civil war could ignite a broader regional conflict. *******/Nir Elias
