What are IDF up to? Repeatingly violating the cease-fire conditions and provocing the UN forces in every way posible.
Trying to cause an incident that will justify them to take up full scale warfare?

I'm afraid so.

10 days ago they almost succeded.

French defense minister told the lower house of Parliament on Wednesday:
"Our troops barely avoided a catastrophe. In legitimate defense, our soldiers removed the covers from the missile battery and were two seconds away from firing at the planes that were threatening them".


U.N. peacekeepers reported 14 violations by Israeli aircraft last week during mock raids, including three over the headquarters of French troops in the southern Lebanese town of Froun.

French officials said the warplanes dived toward the ground, then jerked skyward in maneuvers that could be used to drop bombs or fire on ground forces.

The planes were "clearly in attack position," the French defense minister said.

The French complaints follow allegations that Israeli fighters fired over a German warship off the Lebanese coast, which Israel denied, and a report of a non-hostile encounter between Israeli F-16 fighters and a German helicopter.

The Israeli Defense Ministry says reports of the Oct. 31 incident are under investigation.

If the fighterplanes would have been shoot at, you can be sure they would have retaliated - and it would all have been a deplorable mistake. And an excuse to get the war going again.

I would say a Israeli policies of war are nothing but provocations by calculated mistakes.
Like missiles going astray killing innocent civilians in heavy populated areas like Gaza.

It's a shame they didn't shoot them down.

The Israelis are in dire need of a lesson in humility.

Why in the name of Heaven is Israel able to get away with this type of behavior? As everyone knows, this is not an isolated incident. Israel is constantly crying the blues about how everyone is against them, and everyone hates them. Hmmm..... fodd for thought - maybe there's a reason why........
just my 2 cents

In part, because they know that in the richest and most powerful country on the planet, there is a significant percentage of the population that will uncritically support them no matter what they do. Also because they are aware that said country will continue to bankroll them with it's taxpayers money no matter what they do.
