Good thing those UN peacekeepers are there to keep the lid on Hizballah belligerency, eh? “Call for Israel to leave Shebaa farms area,” from Clancy Chassay in The Guardian, with thanks to DRK:
Hizbullah will resume its military campaign against Israel unless it withdraws from the disputed Shebaa farms area and other pockets of territory occupied during this summer’s 34-day war, Nabih Berri, speaker of the Lebanese parliament, has warned.
“If Israel does not pull out we will have to drive them out,” said Mr Berri, who acted as a link to the militant organisation during this summer’s war with Israel, in an interview with the Guardian.
Hizbullah will remain armed and fully operational in south Lebanon, despite the newly-deployed UN forces, until Israel withdraws from all Lebanese territory and ceases its ongoing air, sea and land violations, Mr Berri added.
“The Unifil presence will not hinder Hizbullah’s defensive operations. The resistance doesn’t need to fly its flags high to operate, it’s a guerrilla movement; it operates among the people,” he said.
Yes it does indeed, hoping to provoke strikes that will kill civilians, so that those civilians can be used in staged photos and videos with the willing help of Reuters and others.
