Jeg læste netop denne nyhed på VG:
Fire drept på FN-post
Fire soldater ble drept da en FN-post ble truffet av et israelsk luftangrep.
Israelske soldater har drept en fremstående Hizbollah-lederen, Abu Jaafar, ifølge den israelske hæren.
Jaafar er lederen for Hizbollahs geriljasoldater på Libanons grense til Israel. Han skal ha blitt drept i en skuddveksling med israelske soldater ved den libanesiske grensebyen Maroun al-Ras, melder NTB.
Det er så interessant lige for nylig at have læst følgende på AtlasShrugs:
[…] Hizb’Allah has been known to base itself right next to UNIFL forces in the hopes that Israel would inadvertantly hit UNIFL in response. This is understandable from Hizb’Allah’s cynical [Cynical? savage is more like it – Atlas] perspective, but harder to fathom in relation to UNIFL’s mandate to restore peace and security.
It is often noted that UNIFL failed in its mission, but even that is too kind, to the extent that implies that its presence is benign. In reality, UNIFL has provided more security to Hizb’Allah than it has to Israel increasing the likelihood of conflict and helping to make the current confilct inevitable.

UN Humanitarian Chief Accuses Hizballah of Causing the Deaths of Hundreds in Lebanon
UN humanitarian chief Jan Egeland accused Hizballah on Monday of causing the deaths of hundreds of Lebanese civilians during the past two weeks of cross-border violence with Israel. “Hizballah must stop this cowardly blending… among women and children,” he said. “I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don’t think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men.
Læg mærke til at den norske avis kalder terroristerne fra hizbollah for ‘guerilla’.
