Lebanese anti-aircraft guns have opened fire on four Israeli fighter planes that were violating airspace over the southern part of the country.


Depending on the Israeli response this could be a major escalation in tensions between the two parties. Israel seems to be doing that on all thier fronts...

Lebanon: explosion killed 2 hamas members 2 days ago and now this.
Gaza: Israelis killed 3 militants along border fence
West bank: Israel killed 3 militants belonging to al-aqsa martyrs brigades
Iran: merely from the fact its the end of the year and all the rhetoric and hawking pointed to this time for airstrikes on Iranian Nuke Facilities. also Iran is internally a mess right now. Destabilization could lead to Iran doing something...

1) Using PressTV is like using whatdoesitmean or "the SUN".
Useless rags!

2) Are you sure it was Israel bombing Lebanon or was it hezbolla terrorists messing up a terrorist bomb.

3) You fail to mention that the "CounterAttack" on Gaza was in response to their attack...

4) Too bad they did not remove ALL the terrorists from the west bank-militant is just a nice way of saying murdering terrorist.

Did you even read the article?? It was Israeli planes flying low over Lebanon and the Lebanese army using their right to fire at them because they were flying low illegally.
How about the New york times ?? better link??

Reuters


U.N. peacekeepers and Lebanon say Israeli flights over the country violate Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended a 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas in 2006.

Israeli warplanes fly over Lebanon frequently but are no frequently fired on. An spokesman for the Israeli army said it was checking the report of the incident.

Israel relies heavily on air supremacy and its air raids destroyed large districts of the Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut and several towns and villages in south Lebanon during the 2006 war.


Let's wait a while, shall we? See if this kinda incident is a common one.

Yes, yes it is.

Also, I was responding to the poster comments:
"Lebanon: explosion killed 2 hamas members 2 days ago and now this.
Gaza: Israelis killed 3 militants along border fence
West bank: Israel killed 3 militants belonging to al-aqsa martyrs brigades
Iran: merely from the fact its the end of the year and all the rhetoric and hawking pointed to this time for airstrikes on Iranian Nuke Facilities. also Iran is internally a mess right now. Destabilization could lead to Iran doing something... "

Well, the hezbolla terrorists rearming is against the UN resolution, but I don't see anyone doing anything about it....

So, as usual, Israel will have to take care of business that no one else will.

The Lebanese military reports, almost on a daily basis, airspace violations by Israeli aircraft, but does not normally open fire on them. The UN considers Israeli violation of Lebanese airspace to be against Security Council Resolution 1701, which brought an end to the Israeli offensive on Lebanon in 2006.


On a daily basis?

Israel still violates UN resolutions?

If the fired shots aren't enough of a sign for the Lebanese saying "back off," maybe next time they can actually shoot one down and watch where it lands, so that the Israeli apologist can't deny it.

I fear this is another one of those problem reaction solution issues, thing is with the mainstream media reporting it, there is no way really of knowing what is actually happening out there. IMHO Israel is just a bully wanting what is not theirs, yet the majority of the west seem to support them all the time. We attacked Iraq for less, in fact we attacked Iraq illegally, all they did was threaten, everyone knew they didn't have the means to carry out their threats, but we invaded them anyway. think about it, if this was someone flying illegally over the UK or US air space with war planes it would be seen as an act of war. would it not? so why should this be any different, they have a right to protect and defend themselves, with the backing of all their allies.

War is not good for anyone other than those who gain to profit from it, in either land or money, this is being perpetrated by the west, and if not stopped this is going to get very ugly indeed.

The US attacked iraq ignoring the UN, israel ignores the UN regarding war crimes reports, iran tells the UN to urinate off.. rules are made to be broken and the UN exists to be ignored... if accurate, hezbollah is following US & israeli lead by ignoring UN rules that get in the way... business as usual.

Otherwise, good for the lebanese, they should defend their country... the real drama will start when they succeed in blowing a US supplied israeli jet out of the sky, the pilot gets captured.. then israel responds by shelling populated areas, hezbollah takes revenge...and all that good stuff... fun times for the new year.

When TPTB create a nation and allow said nation to occupy land that isn't theirs.. persistent violent rejection by the locals should be expected. You wouldn't like it if some strangers decided to give your peoples land away to a country that was created out of thin air like a federal reserve note.

The US populace expect others to put up with things we would reject as total BS... and rejection of the US govts will & expectations will not be tolerated! or else its time to take care of business with death & violence.
