The family of kidnapped soldier Ron Arad confirmed on Monday that the person appearing in a promotional video for the Lebanese channel LBC was, in fact, Ron Arad. They said that they had not seen such a portrayal of their relative in 20 years and added that it must be investigated who was behind it, Channel 2 reported. Clips from the video were released on Monday by the Lebanese television station, promising to show the complete footage in a week. Arad was abducted by the Amal militia in Lebanon in 1986 and was later handed to Hizbullah.
