Hizbullah claims to have hit warship; IDF denies

Hizbullah’s Al-Manar television claimed on Monday that guerrillas had hit an IDF warship with missiles off the coast. The IDF denied the claim.

Al-Manar said the strike on the warship off the coast of the southern city of Tyre was part of its retaliation for Sunday’s IAF strike in Kana that killed at least 56 civilians. “This is the beginning of our vengeance for the children of Kana,” it said.

The IDF said that “despite all reports in the Arab media,” none of its ships were hit. It said all its ships were accounted for.

5 wounded in UAV attack on Syrian-Lebanese border

Five people were wounded when an IDF UAV bombed a truck that had traveled from Syria into Lebanon on the border between the two countries overnight Sunday.

The driver of the truck was wounded, as well as four additional Lebanese customs workers.

Israel had declared a cessation in IAF action, but reserved the right to attack in the case of immediate threat.

It was unclear what the truck was carrying.

It should also be noted that Israel agreed to cease air strikes in Southern Lebanon for 48 hours… this border Crossing is not in Southern Lebanon..

PM: No ceasefire now, nor in the coming days

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert insisted on Monday that in spite of the 48-hour cessation of air-strikes that the government had announced, “there is no ceasefire and there will be no ceasefire in the coming days.”

IDF: Hizbullah only has few rocket launchers left

The IDF assessed on Monday that Hizbullah’s rocket launching capability was significantly compromised by the fighting that took place in the past three weeks.

It was estimated that, while the organization still has hundreds of rockets with a sufficient range to reach Afula and Haifa, there were only a number of launchers remaining with launching capability.

Peretz: IDF will expand ground offensive

Israel must not agree to an immediate cease-fire, but rather expand and strengthen its attacks on Hizbullah, Defense Minister Amir Peretz told an emergency session of the Knesset on Monday. “We must not agree to a ceasefire that would be implemented immediately,” Peretz said at the start of the heated session.

Any “Cease Fire” that does not remove Hizbollah as a fighting force in southern Lebanon is not a Cease Fire but simply a pause in the fighting that allows the terrorists to rearm, resupply, and continue their offensive against Israel when they are better prepared. Those who are seeking a cease fire that does not include disarming of Hizbollah are nothing more than cheerleaders for terrorists world wide.

  1. Sounds like good news to me. Israel said that they will control Lebanon in one week. I’m assuming they mean a ‘safty zone’, and not all of Lebanon.
