You're quite right, I didn't bother going back to re-read the post and I misremembered.

The quote was:

(...) However, the plane is grounded since the incident and it is unclear when it will resume activity - if at all.

The Air Force fears that despite the planned re-use of the evaporator, it is not clear whether it will retain its evasive ability. The IDF confirmed the details and said that at no stage was life threatening to the pilot and are now awaiting the opinion of Lockheed Martin (...)
Which, as you've pointed out, says that it was the Israeli air force - not Lockheed Martin - that thought the repairs might be beyond the capabilities of their technicians.
