The IDF Gallilee commander describes yesterday’s battle against Hezbullah, and shows how the terrorists regularly commit war crimes that are ignored utterly by the world media:
Over the past few months the Northern Command has been carrying out hasty preparations for a quick and decisive retaliation plan on Hizbullah bases south Lebanon, awaiting such an attack. The aim was simple: Employ various means simultaneously, disrupt the fire and deal Hizbullah a significant blow. â€œPreparations were made by consolidating means: fighters were sitting with their sights aimed waiting for terrorists to come while other forces were primed to attack all bases by various means. We took out a lot of Hizbullah bases, all those along the border including those built in the past few months in the west. We made an effort to hit the terrorists, rather than the structures. Every manned post was in our sights; they tried to put snipers on us but they got hit too; they aimed anti-tank missiles but they missed and our tanks hit their bases,â€ the senior officer related.
He said that during the battle soldiers saw dozens of children being sent towards the Tziporen base and throwing stones. Brig.-Gen. Hirsch, who led the fighting, instructed a direct hit on the sniper cell, and only after the children had gone were helicopter gunships sent to flatten the base. â€œThey also hid in UN buildings, which forced our attacks to be chirurgic and exact. We recommended the UN take cover when the battle started. We didnâ€™t shoot on any target where UN employees were present.â€
So not only is Hezbullah in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, but they’re also in violation of the Geneva Convention.
And yet, you won’t hear calls for a war crimes tribunal against these scumbags.
