More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed during Israel's 19-day war in Gaza, Palestinian medical officials have said, as clashes continue throughout the Strip.

Civilians make up about 40 per cent of casualities with children accounting for a third of the dead, aid agencies and Palestinian medics said.

It is my understanding that Hezbollah has become an organization that uses tactics similar to those of the IRA. These tactics, only kill innocents, and rarely have any military significance. Using suicide bombers, is not a way to form a regime change. It only entrenches the current regime and units the people of Isreal under their government against you. A new tactic needs to be developed by Hezbollah. Killing civilians is what I hate more than anything, and it seems to be all that they do.


They never do that, Hezbollah has never attacked unless provoked. When Israel left in 1990, they never did anything until the 2006 war, it is a resistance that acts only when attacked, unlike other terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda.
In 2007, a palestinian terrorist group called Fath Al Islam attacked multiple army targets in Lebanon. The army isolated them in a village called Nahr el Bared, and they were eradicated. During that time, Hezbollah supported the army's acts, if they were terrorists, they wouldn't have supported them, that's proof that they're here to make sure we have a fighting force if Israel attacks, due to our army being unequipped to fight a force as strong as the IDF.

I stand by my previous statements. Per aljazeera:

2:43pm: General Gadi Eisenkot, the head of Israel's northern command, just called the clashes a "one-time event," and said he didn't expect the violence to escalate.

He also said two Israeli officers were wounded in the fighting.

And Israel will conduct an internal investigation to prove it was Lebanon's fault.

I have not received any more messages from my brother in about 2 hours but i am sure he is ok.

Can someone summarise what has been confirmed?


What's confirmed:

Press TV reported a ceasefire had been agreed between the Israeli and Lebanese militaries via UNIFIL and that South Lebanon was now "calm".

Confirmed by TheOrphic who said he heard the same.


BBC reporting Three Lebanese soldiers killed, one Lebanese journalist killed, two Israeli soldiers injured. Generally what other news wires are reporting.

www.bbc.co.uk...

Al Jazeera reporting Israel confirming death of Israeli Lieutenant Colonel, the channel goes on to say that situation has now "calmed down".

Indeed its good to get some clarity here. The incident is over and a ceasfire is in effect.

However i have to admit that tensions along that border have been rising for months now. It would not surprise me at all if more skirmishes take place soon. Israel and Lebanon/Hezbollah will be in a war at some point in the next few years.

However its not going to lead to WW3

But does that make this thread any less worthy of the numerous others which proclaim nothing more than trite making the most active thread list. Here we have a breaking news story with sources placed in the countries of question and opportunity to get first-hand information and comment.

Should we be debunking lanterns as UFOs?

Edit: Typo

This is a very controversal thread, and Iunderstand that people let their temper get the better of them from time to time, including me.

I am highly disturbed by the amount of antisemitism on this board. It is easy for people to take sides, but we are blaming whole populations of people for acts that they can not control. Myself included.

The only way to prevent these types of situations, is for both sides to be willing to be open to free dialogue and drop their pride. This is a very sad situation for everyone that lives in the Middle East. But everyone in the world seems to be throwing fuel on the fire.

I'm amazed at how uniformed and hateful most of the posts here are. So many of you buy the Hezzbolah/Hamas so easily. The ones who wring their hands about Israel, never have anything to say when these groups are launching barrages of artillery in to civilian cities. Which should really make anyone reading this forum skeptical of your opinions.

Also, this picture says it all.

Thanks alot. It seems a bigger event was luckily avoided.

This is exactly the type of incident i was referring to that could spark a new war. I remember talking to you about this a day or two ago.

Its amazing how things can go from calm to crazy to calm again in that region so quickly.

its the first big clash after the lebanon 2006 war
dont beleive what Israeli generals says
this one time event can lead to another event and another event
you are NAIVE to even think its finish nothing wont happen
people got killed ... no worries .. its finish ...israel will again have another warcrime go unpunished

accident like these have always lead to big wars in the past
stop saying its ok now ...no one will fight back after this
nothing will happen
OMG people are so much ignorant today
they live in a happy fairy world where Israel can do anything
and wont be condemned by anyone because they are RIGHT ...
ya sure .. maybe not right after this skirmish but people will get fed-up
meaning ... more accident and killing will not be far aways because of this clash..

peace bro


and stop thinking this event will progress in a peacefull way

I admitted to being involved in that, but apparently you did not read the post on the first few pages of this thread. I got angry at all of the anti semitism.

I apologized, if that is not enought for you, I really don't care.

Have a good day, and God bless you.

Context. Were they talking, shouting, arguing, joking with each?

A picture can mean a thousand words when taken out of context.
