The Israeli military admitted that it misled the public about the type of missile used in a deadly raid in Gaza. Thursday’s statement by Israel’s army chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Moshe Ya’alon, did not divulge the classified weapon that killed 10 Palestinian terrorists and bystanders in the Nuseirat refugee camp on Oct. 10, but admitted that the official account — a helicopter-launched Hellfire tank-busting missile — was wrong.
