News Updates: 7/15/06- Night Edition

12:13 AM: (Last update for the night) Jpost is reportning an IDF statement which says that they believe they have eliminated at least 25% of Hezbollah's capabilities.

8 Canadian Lebanese non-combatants were killed in the IAF attack on southern Lebanon.

A total of 39 people have been wounded as a result of today's rocket attacks.

At least 3 Kassam rockets landed in Sderot just a short while ago, causing some damage but no reported injuries.

The Katyusha that hit Afula marks the farthest south that any Katyusha has gone to date.

Arutz 7 is reporting that since the start of the conflict last Wednesday, over 600 people have been injured to the point of required admittance to hospital. of those 600, 42 are still in the hospital, with at least 3 in serious condition, including a 5 year old girl who suffered severe head wounds from shrapnel from a Katyusha that landed in Tzfat last week.

Israel has issues a Travel Advisory to Israelis traveling abroad stating that Hezbollahs has plans to kidnapp Israelis during their overseas travel. Israelis are urged to refrain from visiting Arab countries other than Mauritania and Comoros Islands.

After Nasrallah's comments that Israel doesn't know the amount of missiles it has in its possession, the head of the IAF came out and stated that they know that Hezbollah has over 10,000 missiles at its disposal that they've been collecting since Israel withdrew from the souther Lebanon border over 6 years ago. The IAF commander also stated that they know that several of those stockpiled missiles can reach distances of over 70 kilometers.

Summery of events from the last hours: (All cross Posted with The Daily Tid Bit)
Update 11:40PM- Katyushas are reported to have fallen on Afulah, Natzrat Illit, Givat Ella and Migdal HaEmek.

More fighting is going on in the South, Golani has reported to have killed over 12 terrorists in the past 24 hours of fighting.
That did not stop another 3 Kassams from falling on the Negev - No injuries reported
15 soldiers were injured lightly when a Katyusha hit Shomera in the north.
The G-8 Summit called for the release of the soldiers and to stop attacking Israel - They also told Israel to cease it's fire against Lebanon.

As it has been in the past few days the residents living in the north are asked once again to spend the night in Bomb Shelters. We hope that this will be our last update for the night, and hope to have a quiet uneventful night to all! UPDATE - I spoke to soon!!

8:22 PM: Channel 2 is reporting that Hezbollah terrorists attempted to break through the northern border into Israel. They were stopped and killed before they could succeed.

Arutz 7 is reporting that it's been confirmed that the rocket that hit Haifa this morning was BOTH Iranian and Syrian. While the rocket contained part that came from Syria, the missile itself was the Iranian made Fajr missiles.

Hezbollah warned Israel that it would target Haifa's petrochemical plants if the IDf did not stop its attacks on Beirut.

More rockets landed in the Metula area, bringing the number of Katyusha rockets fired into Israel in the past 5 days as more than 800.

8:02 PM: Channel 2 is reporting that Israel is calling for the removal of UN forces from south Lebanon to be replaced by a multi-national force that can actually be effective.

More Katyushas have fallen in Meiron, Nahariya, Tzfat, amongst other northern cities and towns.

7:15 PM: Jpost is reporting that Israel is threatening to leave the World Press Federation if the orgnizations doesn't retract statements made after IDF forces attacked sattelites and television stations belonging to Al-Manar, Hezbollah's flagship station. The Federation is accusing Israel of targeting the station in order to quell freedom of the press. Israel's statement said that these kinds of comments and their condemnations of Israel actions represent "overt support for terrorism."

Lebanon is asking other Arab nations to help out, financially, in rebuilding infrastructure destroyed by Israeli attacks. Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have already pledged tens of millions of dollars to Lebanon.

Does this sycophantic drivel actually make you two feel better about yourselves? Only ardent Zionists seeking self-affirmation read your posts anyway, and occasionally someone reasonable like me will do it for a good chuckle at your ideological expense.

So you made aliyah and now you're going to do everything in your power to justify it? That's outcome-based decision-making, friend. Congratulations, you are on the same level of fanaticism / logic as the people you hate. Welcome to the moral trenches.

Fox News does a better job at actually rallying people around the Israeli flag, I would expect that they should put you out of business soon. They're much craftier at playing to your crowd.

Behemoth,
I think you have been told already that personal insults are not accepted here!

I understand that you have some issues - but please we are not the address you need.
Since you really have nothing of any substance to say, and all you really come here to do is to insult people - I am asking you nicely not to comment on our blog any more.

I just found your blog via a convoluted journey from Michelle Malkin, thanks for all the info that FOX News and all the other media "know-it-alls" don't give us.
We are with you, for what it's worth. We hope that you guys have the endurance to get rid of the Hizbollah filth, I read on another site that this fight has a lot of support amongst the Christians of Lebanon.
We think its ironic that we get attacked here in America and we form a huge coalition and get to go out and kill a bunch of evil terrorists. It happens to Israel all the time and she has to defend herself all alone. It doesn't make any sense to us.
God bless you guys.

In addition to that poor 5 yrs old girl, you can check here and see what is happening on the other side.

Wish all this will come to an end.
Note : Hizbollah does NOT represent lebanon, nor does it represent the government of Lebanon. Did you hear Lebanese PM Saniora speech yesterday ? It was very positive.
YET, your government has been used to using collective punishment . Why destroying bridges, power plants, roads, fuel tanks and all infrastructure for ALL civilians ??

You can surely say something about it in your blog, to balance things.

try to be more positive.

Thanks so much for the updates. This is getting to be personal, as some of those rockets struck the place where my relatives live... Keep up the good work!

Osaid:

Hezbollah is in the Lebanese Government - 2 Ministers I believe. It certainly represents some people in Lebanon, but the point is that it has been allowed to attack Israel.

I wish there was a way to cut out supply of weapons to Hezbollah and to annihalate the terrorists without affecting innocent people, but there isn't one.

I assume it was OK for you to insult me on my blog based on character assassination? You people really are great at double standards. I will continue commenting when I see something that outrages me. For the record, your sycophantic comrades outrage me.

If you are the gutless intolerant anti-democratic Zionist cowards I take you for, then you can ban me or kindly ask me to abstain from commenting all you want. But it only proves me right.

Behemoth,
I promise to refrain from commenting at all on your Blog, OK?
We told you from your first comment that we have no issues with ANYONE who does not agree with us - In fact I Like to see that other people read my blog.
I have an issue with the personal attacks, and if you can't figure out how to comment on our site without insulting anyone - then just don't comment - if you have something constructive to say (IE - Osaid's comment - while I don't agree with him brings good points - even if they are wrong).

Osaid,
Bridges, roads, airports Fuel tanks ETC. that are used by the military are no longer considered Civilian and therefore are military Targets. For example the American Interstate Highway system. Israel has some roads like that as well - but Hizbullah is not aiming at the roads they are trying to kill civilians - Why aren't they attacking the Army that is sitting on the border??

Also using civilian areas to hide weapons - big no no in Int. Law. All these things are not collective punishment - Firing rockets into cities at random on the other hand is collective punishment!

AS for PM Seniora, Just like I have nothing against the people of Lebanon - I have nothing against their Govt. It's just sad that it took this much pressure on him to make him do something he should have done OVER 6 YEARS AGO!!!

STOP ignoring the FACTS and pretending that your government is paying much attention and care in avoiding civilians. They are going crazy and mad day by day as hizbollah is showing how stupid they appear to all the world.

You can convince some people that targeting the airport and the bridges is to stop support and movement of militants. How would you justify destroying the 2 main factories in Sayda this morning ( more than 500 workers in each ) and how would you justify destroying the cows farms ( 400 cows exterminated ). All this suggests strongly that you are targeting the infrastructure of lebanon and using collective punishment again. You are doing the same stupid mistakes you have been doing in Gaza. Someone has to stand up and say NO to this insanity.

I was very pleased to hear some voice of reason in this MOST unnecessary war
Oleh :
It tells me that there are people who are aware of your government stupidities and mistakes as well as readiness to speak up to stop them. At the comments you can see some supporters too.

Moreover ; the soldiers were kidnapped in lebanese areas, unlike what you have said in your posts in this blog. What were a tank doing INSIDE the lebanese borders ?
You do serious mistakes and expect others to be wise !! How insane.

You expect lebanon to bring back the 2 kidnapped soldiers where in fact you have been ignoring hundreds of lebanese prisoners who have been rotting in Israeli prisons long before these soldiers were born. The same insanity in the 9000 Palestinian prisoners ; Shalit's life is 'more important' than palestinian's !!

President Saniora was much more understanding and wise in all his speeches. He never said he will bomb Israel to the ground nor he said he would bring you 20 years back, as your officials are saying. The same stupid mistakes arabs have been doing when they were asking the USA govt to stop giving weapons to Israel coz it's using it against palestinians is now being used by your government. They are asking Iran and syria to stop supporting the Hizb with weapons.. they are learning some lessons I guess..the wrong lessons !

I believe you have added few more millions of enemies to your enemy list by bombing beirut and lebanon this way. Your govt is totally ignoring the future.

Shlemazel :
I like your comments and posts. They are quite balanced and meaningful.
Saniora's ( PM ) speech was exactly adressing your point : Hizb is in the government and it "dragged" the whole country into crisis ( escalated into WAR by your Olmert and cabinet) without prior notice. This was Saniora's point. This should have meant something to Israel but It has NOT.

Your political leaders are used to using brutal military power to end any threat or military or political movement agaiinst them. They have been used to sending their soldiers in one order to 'kill all terrorists' or to' destroy the infrastructure of terror'. They were met by a group of unprofessional teens who carrey some m16's or other russian weapons and few granades at the best. They would finsih the 'operation' with ease and come back with ' more respect' to this' superior moral army'. It is very exciting how the Hisb is now well armed and is actually showing ability to respond back to your army. The problem is not with Hizb's missiles or IDF capabilities, leave the 2 for some time and they will kill each other ( very simple , and surely IDF will take the round ) : the problem is with your political mentality that is disgusting and lacking wisdom and vision.

If you keep looking to the world around you in this way, show people this utmost intolerance and brutality, you will surely pay the price very soon.

It makes me feel sad that these innocent people from Haifa are being targeted, the responsibility is NOT on the Hiz alone, it is shared by your political decision makers, the wise ones !

As for my stance on all this Oleh :
Many palestinians might be impressed that the Hizb is targeting military as well as civilian targets deep is Israel, and casuing much confusion in IDF. This surely does not mean our support to what is happening, especially that the Hizb has a totally different agenda that we all know who is behind it. STILL what is in common in the Israeli mentality of collective punishment, looking at arab people as subhumans, utmost arrogance and insensitivity you are bearing in mind once dealing with the arab population.

No one has regreted killing the children and babies leaving Marwaheen . Such a crime should have warranted investigations and should have pushed the Israeli govt to stop their blind military revenge, even for one hour, and think about the consequences. Interestingly ; the Hizb has targeted civilians in Tyberia and Hayfa ONLY after warning Israel from attacking south Beirot.

behemoth, that's strike 3. You have nothing constructive to write, and you do nothing but insult other people and their beliefs. Stop posting here. Your comments are not wanted. Good-bye.

Ummm... OK, Osaid. You're right. We're wrong. Now, we'll just get back to killing more cows because we have nothing better to do with our time.

Osaid,

Saniora gave a heart-felt speech, but he was still afraid to NAME Hezbollah. How can we expect that he would DO something about them? In any case it's not the words that matter. I have not seen the Lebanese army fighting Hezbollah yet.

With good intentions but lack of actions from the Lebanese Government, Israel has no choice but to defend it's citizens.

It's not my business, but it would be a shame to see Behemoth101 disappear from your comment section. He just shows the level of anti-zionist Jews.

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger Olah Chadasha said...

I understand that shlemazl, but I have no interest in having people come here and do nothing but spew vitriolic hatred towards other people and insult and belittle other peoples' beliefs. He's done enough to show his self-hating Jewish sentiments. It's time for it to stop, and for him to say good-bye, and to act like an adult and take his immature and uneducated antics else-where.
