Lebanese media on Friday aired a clip under the name of Hezbollah, which media sites claim to be a clip of "Operation True Promise," Hezbollah's name for the kidnapping of IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in 2006.

The video shows armed operatives crossing into Israel from Lebanon, and shooting toward a military vehicle.

The terrorists then approach the vehicle, and open one of the doors. The clip ends at this point and neither Golwasser nor Regev are seen in the video.

The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the veracity of the video.
