leopard firefighters what are the army beasts that fight fires

Fire fighting leopard tanks were deployed by the Greek army on the fire fronts to step up efforts to put out the fires. The fire fighting tanks belong to the Greek Armor Training Center in Avlona that gave orders to these greek modified leopard tanks to move on any fire front if its deemed necessary.

These tanks are called “OLYMPUS”, “DEFKALION” and “DAVID”. “DAVID” had participated in the operations in Kastanies of Evros after Turkey tried to push more than 100.000 immigrants illegally to Greece in 2020. The tanks were built with greek modification in 2014 by the 304 Advanced Base Factory of the Greek Armed Forces.

They have a capacity of 12.5 tons and a range of about 35 meters, while they have the advantage that they can operate in inaccessible places that can not be approached by vehicles of the fire brigade since they are built at the base of the Leopard 1A5 tank.

The Greek army fire fighting tanks have been built initially to be used in shooting ranges but are now playing an active role in the country’s difficult effort to extinguish fires at the request of the Greek Civil Protection.

URGENT: New rocket fire from Lebanon triggers Israeli response - GEOPOLITIKI.COM

Sirens sounded again in Israel with at least 10 rockets fired from Lebanon targeting Israel. Most of the rockets aimed at northern Israel were intercepted by the Israeli armed forces, while the rest fell in open areas near the Golan Heights.

The Israeli military has said it will not allow attacks on Israeli civilians to go unanswered and has launched an offensive in parts of Lebanon from which rockets were fired.

Rockets were fired from Lebanon at Israel two days ago. In particular, three rockets were fired, one of which failed and landed on Lebanese soil, while the other two hit an open point in northern Israel.

Israel has said it blames the Lebanese government for the attacks, saying that could had prevented such incidents. The attacks on Israel are likely to come from the Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorist organization backed by Iran.

The recent attacks on Israel are probably the result of increased tensions between Iran and Israel on the occasion of the incident with the attack on the Israeli tanker. Today’s attack may also be related to yesterday’s statement by the Israeli Defense Minister that Israel could attack Iran if deemed necessary.
