UN On Hizballah’s Side
A UN observation post was reportedly hit by Hizballah rockets today, but the United Nations is trying to claim that it was an Israeli artillery shell: Hezbollah Rockets Hit UN Observation Post.
JERUSALEM — A U.N.-run observation post just inside Israel was struck during fighting between Israel and Hezbollah militants on Friday. The Israeli army blamed Hezbollah rockets but a U.N. officer said it was an artillery shell fired by the Israeli Defense Force.
A U.N. officer, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, said an artillery shell fired by Israel made “a direct hit on the U.N. position overlooking Zarit.” The post is part of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon.
But an IDF spokesman said the position was hit by rockets fired by Hezbollah that fell short of their targets in northern Israel.
