An Israeli airstrike hit a United Nations post in southern Lebanon late Tuesday, killing four international observers, hours after Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert agreed to lift Israel's 14-day blockade of Lebanon for shipments of humanitarian aid to reach the swelling ranks of displaced Lebanese
U.N. officials said an aerial shell struck an observer post in the hilltop town of Khiyam, and rescue teams reached the site soon after to search for
survivors in the rubble. Milos Strugar, a senior adviser for the mission, known by the acronym UNIFIL, said the four observers inside the post had
taken cover in bunkers after 14 Israeli airstrikes landed nearby throughout the afternoon.
I read somehwre in regards to this incident that the UN observers saw the Israeli military using cluster weapons or targetting civilians, dont quote
me on that, but they were doing something wrong at the time that the UN saw and they wanted to hit those observers to stop them reporting what they
The observers did call Brussells telling them that they were being targeted.
Heres some more related info-
The situation with the deliberate bombing on the UN outpost made me more than a little angry. There is no way possible that it was an accident. For
one, Israel employs satellite-guided laser 500 lb. bombs. The co-ordinates for targets come down from the U.S. military satellite system. So any bomb
that hits a specific target had those co-ordinates programmed in.
Maybe not a UN ship but the USS Liberty was also hit, remember?
The media fail to mention that on June 8, 1967 the USS Liberty was attacked by aircraft and boats from the Israeli military. The Liberty was flying
three U.S. flags — one a large flag. When the attack was finished, 34 U.S. sailors lay dead and 174 were wounded. Israel claimed it was a mistake,
but the ship was an electronic ship listening to the chatter and picked up the fact that Israel was the aggressor nation.
Heres a link to the UN observers making many calls before the strike-
The U.N. observers killed when an Israeli bomb hit their bunker in Lebanon Tuesday called an Israeli military liaison about 10 times in the six hours
before they died to warn that aerial attacks were getting close to their position, a U.N. officer said.
After each call, the Israeli officer promised to have the bombing stopped, an officer at the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) base in Noqoura
Finally, an Israeli bomb exploded directly on the U.N. post near Khiyam, killing four U.N. observers from Austria, Finland, Canada and China, the U.N.
If it was any other nation, NATO would have taken action against them, so why didnt they?
Or did the US again "veto" the UN even criticising Israels actions?
Seems to be not the first time and not the last time, but when your dealing with so called "God's chosen people" looks like their Gods law's come
above those of the international communities......what hypocrites
