'10 buildings for every rocket'

In a clear breach of international law Israeli Army Chief of Staff Dan Halutz has given orders for 10 multi-storey buildings to be destroyed in Beirut for every rocket Hizbollah fires at Israel.

Armies are only allowed to hit targets with military value. Hitting CIVILIAN infrastructure for REVENGE is a war crime and opens up DAN HALUTZ to be tried for crimes against humanity. I hope you remember that name.

UN humanitarian chief Jan Egeland has already warned Israel about their wanton destruction of Beirut: "This is destruction of block after block of mainly residential areas. I would say it seems to be an excessive use of force in an area with so many citizens." He said yesterday that was a war crime.

Italian news reported the situation of lebanese and israelian children like this yesterday:
"israelian children cannot sleep anymore because they're too afraid from the never stopping sound of sirens"(picture:children crying, background of siren sounds, ruins).
"lebanese children found shelter in damascus,from where they look at a fireworks show (lebanese children are not suffering, they consider explosions are fireworks!) and they feel like they're in vacation(showing a picture of children dressing up the table & jumping & palying) , while waiting to go back to their houses"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
can you believe it??
here there's a continuous ditortion of the news like this.

I am trying to confirm this news story but the only confirmation I can find is in Khaleej Times. Do you have any Western/Israeli sources?

I agree on that the children from both sides are the miserable in this story

Wonderful propganda you have. If that had been true there would not be any multi-story buildings left in Beirut.

It came from Israeli Army Radio. Some people may call that propoganda, I agree.
