The US Marines used the same battle plan against al Qaida at Fallujah I. They had the same obstacles. and problems. The US Marines learned from that experience how to do it differently and successfully without the criminal errors & problems the IDF duplicated from Fallujah I. The IDF didn't study that part and weren't interested in learning those lessons and avoiding those errors. Fallujah I had to be re-fought as Fallujah II. It was done differently and much more successfully and without all the errors and civilian deaths that plagued Fallujah I.
