It was defined: Whoever was in that specific house was [automatically] incriminated. Whoever left it – incriminated. The drone was watching from above and suddenly a guy comes out of the house. I mean, he appeared – but not exactly from that exact location itself, but rather he popped into view a bit onwards, and so they said, “Hey, he must’ve had to come out of that house.” There was a bunch of back and forth: “He came from there,” “He didn’t,” “Incriminated,” “Not incriminated,” and suddenly another guy shows up, the same thing all over again, and then they said, “OK, this one for sure came out of the house,” and some decision was made, and they were struck. And later, in an inquiry held in their unit, they figured out that there was a footpath going through there, which they hadn’t noticed at all…
A path that went by the house. Yeah, and there was all kinds of vegetation and stuff that was sort of concealing them, and the path mostly, but if you looked well you could see them arriving from there and passing by.
The path went under a tree in front of the house, but didn’t originate from the house. Exactly. And then when they took a closer look – after the event, not during the heat of the mission – they saw that both men had arrived from there.
Did their mission continue after that mistake? It continued. You don’t stop a war because of a mistake.
