1168192722

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz is reporting that an Israeli youth found what appears to be the remains of a tank that was buried in the Negev sands of Holot Nitzanim.  The article notes that police also found a land mine and old tank shells at the site.  Officials say they believe the tank was placed there decades ago by the IDF as a training target.  Only one photo of the turret of the tank is included in the article.  It is not clear to us what type of tank this turret belonged to.
