footage from a unit in battle in Lebanon

__________Update_____________

I removed the video from the site. I think most people who read my blog have already seen it by now, and it has become an annoyance as it starts playing every time you load this site. If you would like to see it, feel free to browse over to Live from an Israeli Bunker (can be found in my blogroll). That is where I got it and he still has it up (as of last time I checked)....

HatTip to Live from an Israeli Bunker, via On the Face blogs.

For a brief explanation of the video, I quote, ""Itai Anghel accompanied regiment 931 of the Nahal Brigade (infantry) to a battle that took place on the night of August 6-7 in Houleh, a Hezbollah-controlled village in Lebanon that is about 3 kilometres north of the border with Israel. Anghel documents the fierce battle that took place using a camera equipped with a night vision lens.With the exception of the officers - Avi Dahan and Biche - all the soldiers are reservists in their 20's and 30's who did their three-year mandatory army service (ages 18-21) in the unit; in other words, they are civilians who responded to emergency call up notices."

  4. Yeah, I saw this report on Channel 2. That where this is from. Great footage. My husband is a Nahal boy, but he was in the famous 50. He was a Mashkon. By the way, how did you put a Windows Media Player on to your site?

  7. whats - I agree. That si why i post these kinds of videos. It is easy to sit back and be an armchair general, but it is different when you experience it. And if you can't do that, then watch these types of videos so you see some of what they go through...

  9. I've almost watched this particular clip about 5 times. Today I did watch it. I'm glad I did. For those not on the direct firing line, a war can become a bit surreal, this clip provides good insight into just how 'real' combat is.
