UN peacekeepers in south Lebanon contacted Israeli troops 10 times before an Israeli bomb killed four of them, an initial UN report says.
The post was hit by a precision-guided missile after six hours of shelling, diplomats familiar with the probe say.

That's interesting, that article does indeed say that the UN has reported guerillas positioning rocket launchers next to UN posts.
Apparently in an effort to draw Israeli fire, and provoke international outrage, forcing an Israeli pullout.

As long as Hezbollah sets up and shoots its missiles at Israel from
residential and other should be safe areas, like a UN position, innocent
people will continue to die. I think I read somwhere that this strike
actually killed a Hezbollah leader. What was he doing at a UN position
in the first place.
