Families of the soldiers who died in the recent Lebanon war received gift certificates mailed to their loved ones, the NRG website reported on Monday. The certificates were meant as a bonus for soldiers who had finished their reserve duty in Lebanon, but due to a mistake, the names of the fallen troops were not removed from the list of eligible recipients. It was unclear whether the families of kidnapped IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev were also mailed gift certificates. The IDF spokesman's office expressed the army's deep apology to the families, and called the incident an "unfortunate mistake." In addition, OC Manpower Maj.-Gen. Elazar Stern appointed an officer to investigate the matter.
