The IDF cleared for release the identity of the elite officer who was killed in a firefight in Gaza in 2018. The officer was identified as Lt.-Col. Mahmoud Kheir al-Din from the Druze town of Hurfeish in the North. He was married to Nahad and the father of two sons. He enlisted into the Paratroopers Reconnaissance Battalion in 1997 and served as a soldier, officer and commander in the Military Intelligence’s Special Operations unit since 2002.

“He was a hero of Israel,” said the Commander of the IDF’s Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Aharon Haliva on Saturday night and said that “after the many operations that he took part in, he deserves to get the respect and honor that suits him.” Haliva said that the military spoke with his family before revealing his identity and that there was no concern regarding the security of any operations.
