The Lebanese television station Al-Mayadeen, which is affiliated with the Hezbollah terror group, aired the first segment of a three-part series on the abduction of two IDF soldiers at the outset of the 2006 Lebanon war.

The program, which was aired on Saturday, included never-before seen footage from the terror operation which kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.

The first segment of the series shows the preparations the terror cell involved in the attack undertook prior to the kidnappings.

While most of the footage focuses on training by the terrorists in anticipation of the attack and reconnaissance operations, it also includes video recordings of the Humvee carrying Goldwasser and Regev just minutes before the fateful attack.

Both Regev and Goldwasser were later killed.
