In a stunning reversal of reality, the UN’s “humanitarian chief” (wtf is a “humanitarian chief,” anyway?) has discovered that Hezbullah is the main reason for civilian deaths in this war.
LARNACA, Cyprus – The UN humanitarian chief accused Hezbollah late Monday of “cowardly blending” among Lebanese civilians and causing the deaths of hundreds during two weeks of cross-border violence with Israel.
The militant group has built bunkers and tunnels near the Israeli border to shelter weapons and fighters, and its members easily blend in among civilians.
Jan Egeland spoke with reporters at the Larnaca airport in Cyprus after a visit to Lebanon on his mission to coordinate an international aid effort.
Yes, this is the same bozo who just accused Israel of violating “humanitarian law” a day or so ago.
“Consistently, from the Hezbollah heartland, my message was that Hezbollah must stop this cowardly blending … among women and children,” he said. “I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don’t think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men.
“We need a cessation of hostilities because this is a war where civilians are paying the price,” said Egeland, before flying to Israel.
Actually, we need a cessation of Hezbullah, but that’s being worked on.
