The Wolf's Debut on TV

For those of you with a soft spot for military hardware, it might be of note that successful Operation Pay a Visit seems to have been the very first time that Zahal used its newly acquired and aptly named Wolf multi-purpose armed vehicle in a major televised operation:

Israeli soldiers guard blinfolded Palestinian prisoners as smoke billows from the prison during an army raid in the West Bank town of Jericho, Tuesday, March 14, 2006. Israeli forces demanded the surrender of prisoners, including the mastermind of the killing of an Israeli Cabinet minister. The operation sparked a shootout with Palestinian police that killed one Palestinian officer and a prisoner, Palestinian security officials said. Several hours into the raid, the first Palestinian prisoners came out, were blindfolded and ordered to strip to their underwear. The army fired tank shells at the prison and bulldozers tore down some of the building's walls, but the top wanted man, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine leader Ahmed Saadat, remained defiant.
