'Small mistake': Israeli military spokesman denies inaccurate information was a ploy to deceive Hamas

Israeli Lt. Col. ConricusA top Israeli military spokesman said Sunday he had made a "small mistake" earlier this week when he told foreign reporters that Israeli troops had begun a ground invasion into Gaza.

But the Israeli spokesman, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, denied it was part of a ruse to lure Hamas fighters into positions where they would be more vulnerable to attacks by Israel Defense Forces.

"There were troops on the ground very, very close to the border, and I had information that they had gone in," when in fact they had not, Conricus said in an interview with USA TODAY.

He said his mistake amounted to the "difference of a few meters on the ground." It was an "unfortunate small mistake that became very important because it was in an important time," he said.
