Aerial footage from what has come to be considered the most significant battle of the Second Lebanon War – in which Israeli hero, Maj. Roi Klein, who jumped on a live grenade to save his comrades, was killed — was released by the IDF for the first time on Sunday.

The battle over Bint Jbeil took place on July 26, 2006, during the third week of the war when members of Battalion 51 of the IDF’s Golani Brigade fought Hezbollah terrorists.

According to Walla News, despite the loss of eight Israeli officers and soldiers during the battle, members of the battalion put up a brave fight against the terrorist group, which had been showering rockets and missiles from Lebanon into Israeli cities prior to and during the war, managing to kill more than 30 Hezbollah terrorists until they surrendered.

    The IDF should be embarrassed. Going back and forth looking to pinpoint target. Wasting precious minutes not seconds. War is dirty. Blow up the whole building. And the’ll get the message not to hide in buildings

    In my nearly sixty-seven years on this earth, I have learned that nothing and no one should be taken for granted. As we here in Israel are approaching the tenth anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, it behooves us to remember and appreciate the sacrifice of life of our valiant soldiers during that time so that we can live in safety and peace within our border to the north. And with their ultimate sacrifices,to this day we have a quiet northern border.
