The IDF released an aerial photograph Tuesday night, showing that the IDF soldiers involved in deadly clashes with Lebanese forces on Tuesday were standing in Israeli territory when they were fired upon, and did not cross the Lebanese border. This information was also reportedly confirmed by a UNIFIL representative.
Angående dagens drama så kan vi återigen konstatera att det som i svensk press kallas ”vid Libanons gräns” i själva verket ägde rum på israelisk mark. Det insinueras naturligtvis i tidningarna att de elaka israelerna tog sig in i Libanon med död och drama som resultat.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman instructed Israel’s UN representative to submit a complaint UN secretary general and security council, citing a violation of UN Resolution 1701. The complaint was made on the basis that Lebanese forces had opened fire despite the fact that the IDF had given prior warning to UNIFIL of their intention to cross the fence in order to cut down a tree, still within Israeli territory, since the fence does not always exactly parallel the border.
