Anti-tank mine clearing operation in Israel - Drone footage

"The Yael Patrol unit, along with the engineering forces of the Central Command, blew up 446 mines in just one week, as part of a special project to develop the Abbey Land area.

The IDF (Special Mission Engineering Unit) received instructions to clear the land of anti tank mines placed in the area more than 50 years ago.
The project has a number of key goals, in particular - to keep travelers safe in the area: "The mines found in the ground were planted there after the Six Day War," explains Sgt. Yael, "These are anti-tank mines, so they are very dangerous". The second goal - to learn and improve. The site provides a golden opportunity to develop and practice the mine blasting technique."
