From what I've now gathered in actively pursuing this line of questioning, Hezbollah fired on an Israeli border post. Israeli troops crossed into
Lebanon to pursue the guerillas and were captured inside Lebanon close to Aita al-Shaab.
I wrote about it in this thread not long after this whole mess began.
Israeli soldiers were captured INSIDE Lebanon.
To me, it changes the whole dynamic of Israel's attempts to justify this Lebanese campaign. For starters, Israel crossed into Lebanon. Hezbollah
didnt cross into Israel, they fired mortars and machine guns across into Israel. So the whole Hezbollah crossed into Israeli territory as an act of
war is false.
Secondly, Israel has routinely fired into Lebanon with extrajudicial killings and assassinations. So to claim Hezbollah doing the same to Israel as an
act of war is seriously disingenuous at best and complete hypocrisy at worst.
