IDF: An incorrect video was attached to the announcement that was released yesterday (Monday) regarding the elimination of Ali Ahmed Hassin, the commander of the Hezbollah terrorist organization’s Radwan Forces in the Hajir region. The video that was attached showed a strike on a military compound in the area of Kfarkela in Lebanon which took place that same night, and not the elimination of the terrorist.

The incident has been reviewed and lessons were learned in order to avoid future errors.
