Terror group Hezbollah published a video of the 2015 attack on an IDF convoy on the Israel-Lebanon border that killed two soldiers and wounded seven others.

The video shows the rocket launcher used in the attack, as well as the launch of a rocket and the explosion when the convoy was hit and Staff-Seargent Dor Nini and Major Yochai Kalengel were killed in January 28, 2015.

Nechemia Nini, father of Staff-Seargent Nini, told Israel's Kan News that "the video makes no difference to us; nothing that can happen is worse than what already happened."

"[The video] doesn't bring me back because I live that terrible moment every day, every hour. Hezbollah thinks it can cause pain? It can't," the father said.

The targed IDF convoy was patrolling the area near Mt. Dov, a volatile border area on the slopes of Mt. Hermon on the Israel-Lebanon border. The convoy was on a road leading to the village of Ghajjar, the only Alawite village in Israel.
Following the attack, the IDF used artillery guns and tanks to fire at Hezbollah targets near the Lebanese border. One Spanish UN peacekeeper was killed in the Israeli return fire.

The attack was preceded by an alleged Israeli helicopter strike on a Hezbollah convoy, which killed senior commander Jihad Mughniyeh along with nine other Hezbollah operatives.
