WTF is Israel doing? Bombing in Lebanon AFTER announcing a ceasefire
I have no idea what to say about this... but rest assured, this will ONLY makes Israel look R-E-A-L-L-Y bad and completely untrustworthy: Israeli jets carried out 2 raids at approximately 1:30 am local time near the village of Yanta, the officials said they were not authorized to give statements to the media. The village lies about 3 miles from the border w/ Syria and 34 miles SE of the capital, Beirut. WTF? The Israeli paper Ha'aretz says this: "The Israeli suspension of air strikes in Lebanon began early in the day and covers the entire country, an IDF spokesman said." The suspension of strikes allows for an investigation into Sunday's bombing that killed the villagers at Qana. YET... CNN says this: "Israel agreed Sunday to halt airstrikes on southern Lebanon for 48 hrs to investigate a raid that killed more than 60 civilians in Qana, an Israeli official said." Oh, then I guess that means it is a free for all & all hell can break loose in the rest of Lebanon, huh? WTF kind of ceasefire is this??
