Of course, the use of civilian areas by Hizballah is being ignored yet again. From Australia’s ABC, with thanks to JE:
Several houses collapsed and a three-storey building, where about 100 civilians were sheltering, was destroyed, witnesses and rescue workers said.
Israel’s military said it had warned residents of Qana to leave and said Hezbollah bore responsibility for using it to fire rockets at the Jewish state.
“Hezbollah used the village of Qana as a base to launch rockets and it bears responsibility that this area is a combat zone,” army spokesman Jacob Dalal told AFP.
Qana is already a potent symbol of Lebanese civilian deaths at the hands of Israel’s military.
Israel has rejected responsibility for civilian deaths saying Hezbollah bore the blame because it used the village as a rocket-launching site.
Meanwhile in their latest attacks, Hezbollah militants have launched more than 90 rockets at northern Israel.
An Israeli commander, Shuki Shahar, says 1,700 rockets have been fired over the border so far.
“All of it were addressed to the cities, to the settlements, to the villages to hit the innocent population and we are acting exactly the opposite – we address all the fire to hit the terrorists.”
