FN bekrefter: Israelsk offiser drept på Israels side av grensen

Israel_Libanon_grenseTre libanesere og en israelsk offiser ble drept på grensen mellom Libanon og Israel tirsdag. Libaneserne hevdet etterpå at israelerne forsøkte å kutte ned et tre på libanesisk side av grensen, og at det derfor var en israelsk provokasjon og grensekrenkelse. Nå viser det seg at libaneserne snakket usant. FN har bekreftet den israelske versjonen. De libanesiske soldatene åpnet uprovosert ild mot israelske soldater som opererte på egen side av grenselinjen.

Fiendtlighetene begynte tirsdag da israelske styrker arbeidet for å kutte ned et tre langs grensen i et område som ligner det området der israelske soldater ble overfalt av opprørere fra den libanesiske militsen Hizbollah i 2006. Den gangen utløste Hizbollahs angrep en månedslang krig mellom Israel og Hizbollah, skriver Washington Post.

På tirsdag var det libanesiske styrker, og ikke terrorister fra Hizbollah, som skjøt på israelske styrker, og israelske soldater skjøt tilbake i en kamp som varte omtrent en time. To libanesiske soldater, en libanesisk journalist og en israelsk offiser ble drept.

For å roe ned situasjonen har lederen for FNs fredsskapende styrker i Sør Libanon innkalt til et møte med offiserer fra begge hærstyrkene, skriver Washington Post.

    Den drepte Israelske offiseren var ca 300 meter inne i Israel på en utkikkspost.
    Underlig nok ble ikke den soldaten som kappet treet drept.
    Uansett om De Israelske soldatene skulle ha vært noen meter inne i Libanon så er ikke det noe grunn for ildgivning.
    Man kan lure på om ikke vedlikeholdet ble brukt som påskudd for å drepe den Israelske offiseren som befant seg på en utkikkspost ca 300 meter inne i Israel fordi han ble drept av en snikskytter.

  • Man bør merke seg at nyhetsbyrået Reuters og Yahoo fremstiller det slik at det kan se ut som om israelerne krysset grensen og Libanon måtte forsvare seg. Media blir mer og mer anti Israel ser det ut som. Og når de store nyhetsbyråene går foran, er det ikke rart at avisene serverer direkte usannheter om Israel.

    In defiance of UN Resolution 1701and right under the noses of the UNIFIL ‘Peacekeeping’ forces, Hezbollah is building up a huge aresenal of weapons in civilian areas http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2006/sc8808.doc.htm
    With tensions mounting along their shared border Israel’s military says Hezbollah is moving fighters and weapons into the villages of south Lebanon building up a secret network of arms warehouses, bunkers and command posts in preparation for war. The Israeli military has begun releasing detailed information about what it calls Hezbollah’s new border deployment, four years after a cross-border raid by its guerrillas triggered a 34-day war. A reminder of the volatility came on August 3, when Lebanese troops fired at Israeli soldiers clearing brush on their side of the border. One Israeli officer was killed, another badly wounded, and a retaliatory helicopter strike killed two Lebanese soldiers and a reporter. Neither side has signaled that another war is imminent, but the Israelis’ unusual openness about what they claim to know of Hezbollah’s preparations seems to have two goals: to show the reach of their intelligenceand to stake their claim that if another war breaks out and many civilians die, it will be because Hezbollah placed its armaments and fighters in their midst. Israel’s military says Hezbollah has changed strategy since the last warmoving most of its fighters and weapons from wooded rural areas into villages. It says the aim is to avoid detection and use to civilians for cover if war erupts. The military says all of this exists under the nose of 12000 international peacekeepers who by their own count, conduct up to 340 patrols a day in south Lebanon but are hobbled by a hostile population and rules preventing them from searching private property. In an interview with The Associated Press on Mount Adira hill overlooking the borderan officer from the military’s Northern Command pointed through the summer haze at the village of Aita al-Shaab. One of its southern most buildings a white structure housing mentally handicapped children is a Hezbollah lookout postthe officer said. Several guerrilla command posts are in civilian buildings in the center of Aita al-Shaabshe saidwith several dozen fighters able to move among houses through underground tunnels. The village also houses a network of warehouses holding arms trucked in from Iran via Syria, she said, some in stand-alone structures and some in smaller stashes in garages, basements and buried under backyards. The officer said the guerrillas now have 5000 fighters operating in the buffer zone between the border and the Litani River — a strip ranging from 5 kilometers to 30 kilometers (3 miles to 18 miles) wide — which is supposed to be free of militant activity under the 2006 cease-fire. In late 2009, Nasrallah said Hezbollah’s rocket arsenal stood at 30000. Israel says it’s now about 40,000. It’s difficult to independently confirm the allegations on the ground. The south Lebanese, mostly Shiite like Hezbollah, tend to support the movement and rarely criticize it publicly or volunteer information. Hezbollah members or supporters often attach themselves to journalists entering villages, shadowing them and discouraging photography. In July, looking to build its case that Hezbollah is digging in among civilians, the military released maps, photographs and a 3-D simulation of the streets and houses of another Lebanese town, Khiam. The simulation shows one arms storeroom, a squat, freestanding building colored red, located 130 meters (150 yards) from a school, colored blue. A map on the military’s Web site purports to pinpoint 12 arms storerooms and three command posts in the town. The Israeli implication is clear: If another war erupts, many civilians will die.
