An uncommonly plain-spoken report from Associated Press says what Israelis have known for some time, and which is going to continue to be un-noticed and not acted upon by people outside of
... Hezbollah is moving fighters and weapons into the villages of south
Reading the text of the infamous - but unanimous - UN Security Council Resolution 1701 of 2006, purportedly ending the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon, feels now like the most cynical of bad jokes.
And as Israelis are only too aware, the threat in the south is no less active.
The IDF fired on two suspects Monday (says YNet) as they were busy planting an explosive device near the security fence intended to keep jihadists in place on the Gazan side and away from Israeli civilians and settlements. A soldier sustained shrapnel injuries when an already-planted explosive hidden near the fence went off. Israeli fire resulted in the death of one of the Gazan-Palestinian-Arab terrorists who, according to Haaretz, was Basem Da'ama (YNet has his name as Bassem Dragma.) This was an Islamic Jihad terrorist who took part in an exchange of fire during March 2010 that led to the deaths of IDF soldiers Eliraz Peretz and Ilan Sviatkovsky.
