The truth is that this is an old photo taken on July 24, 2006, at the Israel-Lebanon border, depicting an injured Israeli soldier being rushed back into Israel from across the border following an incursion into southern Lebanon. However, eight soldiers were killed in an ambush by the Al-Qassam Brigades in the Shuja’iyya, including the battalion commander of the Golani Brigade.

We visited Wikipedia to know more about Golani Brigade. An Israeli military infantry brigade is called the 1st “Golani” Brigade. It has historically been connected to the Northern Command and is under the 36th Division. The Paratroopers Brigade, the Nahal Brigade, the Givati Brigade, and the Kfir Brigade are the other four infantry brigades of the regular Israel Defence Forces (IDF). The brigade consists of five battalions, including two which it kept from its inception (12th and 13th), one transferred from the Givati Brigade (51st). The brigade was formed on February 22, 1948, during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, when the Levanoni Brigade in the Galilee split into the 1st Golani Brigade and the 2nd Carmeli Brigade.

We also visited gettyimages, which attached the image and wrote “Israel-Lebanon border, ISRAEL: An injured Israeli soldier rushed back from across the border into Israel after an incursion inside southern Lebanon, 24 July 2006.”
