Israel breaches the ceasefire

Israel has confirmed a major breach of the ceasefire.

It has sent two commando units deep into Eastern Lebanon.

Three Hizbollah fighters have been killed, according to Lebanese officials. Israel has also suffered heavy casualties.

Their helicopters pulled troops out after coming under heavy fire.

The Israelis were driving in two vehicles in Eastern Lebanon, when they were spotted and ambushed by the Hizbollah fighters. They were on their way to kill Hizbollah official Sheikh Mohammed Yazbek in the village of Bodai.

Hey, it was self defense! What IDF does is always sekf defense. And their operations someday take them to China it will again be self defense :)

But if only one mortar will fall into Israel, then it will be a heavy breach of UN resolution.

Well Jin...

Don’t you think its about time Syria stop passing rockets to hezballa?


yes NIR its about time.

hezbolla brings us only headache and undermines any possibility for peace in the ME , they are lebanons and israels probblem not ours , if we continue to include the lebanese and other arab countries in our interests then there will be no peace between us and israel , this is a fact.


Thanks god for your comments.

I almost lost my faith in the Syrian comments here.

Although I think you are minorities in your country.


you would be surprised how many people are like me , hoping for peace but so many cant talk out on the open because they will then be called traitors and agents working for the west and all that nonesense

syria isnt a democratic country YET so syrians cant say everything they want , peace will ensure and force democracy into our land thats why we should work to achieve peace for the sake of everyone in this area
