Act of war. “Lebanese army fire on Israeli bulldozer near border: TV,” from Xinhua, with thanks to Mackie:
The Lebanese army fired at an Israeli bulldozer when it was trying to cross a border area late Wednesday night, Lebanese Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV station reported.
The report quoted Lebanese military officials as saying that their troops opened fire with machine guns on an Israeli bulldozer after the vehicle crossed a southern border area and entered about 20 yards into Lebanon.
There was no report of casualties, it added.
Earlier on Wednesday, Israel’s Army Radio reported that Lebanese troops fired on Israeli forces as they scoured the area for bombs planted by Hezbollah guerillas.
On Monday, Israeli army said it had discovered four explosive devices that had recently been planted by Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas but the Shiite group denied the allegation, saying that the bombs were planted before outbreak of the 34-day conflict with the Jewish state on July 12.
Oh. That makes it all right.
