Baseless story regarding the Bani Israaeel

Q: Is the following story in the time of Moosa (alaihis salaam) correct?

‘God sent the Angel of Death to kill the firstborn sons of the Egyptians—a proof of His immense strength and power. The Israelites protected their households by putting lamb's blood on their doorway, so that the Angel of Death would know to pass over their homes’. 

A: These stories are baseless. Don't pay attention to it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
