The IDF is considering whether to reveal the face of General Staff Reconnaissance Unit officer Lt.-Col. Emmanuel Moreno, who was killed in combat during the Second Lebanon War in 2006. The IDF has revealed the identity of an officer from an elite unit who was killed in a firefight in Gaza in 2018. According to OC Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Aharon Haliva, Military Intelligence and the Military Censor are now deliberating whether to reveal Moreno’s identity.

“As the head of Military Intelligence, I hold working meetings with the censor where we hold discussions about issues,” Haliva said Saturday night. Revealing the identity of Moreno “is a question that is on the table. This is our next discussion.”

Moreno was born in France in 1971 and moved to Israel with his family when he was one year old. He grew up in the Sanhedria neighborhood of Jerusalem. He enlisted in the IDF in 1990 and joined the General Staff Reconnaissance Unit. He later worked for the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency). He and his wife, Maya, had three children.
