Russia-24 mistakenly published photos of former Prime Minister Ehud Barak instead of the photo of Hamas terrorist Ali Barakhah.

The channel broadcast Barak's photo during extensive coverage of Operation Swords of Iron alongside quotes from the senior Hamas official.

In addition, the channel's reporter called Barakhah "Ali Barak".

Russia-24 is a popular television channel and is owned by the Russian government.

Last week, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the Russian government for deciding to host senior Hamas officials in the country.

"Hamas is a terrorist organization worse than ISIS. The hands of senior Hamas officials are covered in the blood of over 1,400 Israelis who were slaughtered, murdered, executed and burned, and they are responsible for the kidnapping of over 220 Israelis, including babies, children, women and the elderly."

"Israel sees the invitation of senior Hamas officials to Moscow as an obscene step that gives support to terrorism and legitimizes the atrocities of Hamas terrorists. We call on the Russian government to expel Hamas terrorists immediately."
