So confident is the Israeli army that the Gaza offensive against unarmed civilians restored its full deterrence force after its humiliating defeat by Hezbollah in 2006 that they actually had the guts to shoot across the Lebanese border at a Hezbollah… graffiti! Purity of arms indeed. Duh.
‘An Israeli soldier has opened fire on a Hezbollah mural painted on a wall near the entrance of the Aadaisseh village in southern Lebanon. “A soldier got out of his vehicle and deliberately fired at the wall bearing the inscriptions,” some 20 meters (yards) from the border, a Lebanese Army spokesman told AFP on Tuesday. He said five bullets had hit the inscription which shows the “hand of resistance”, a reference to the “divine victory” Hezbollah achieved over Israel during the 33-day war Tel Aviv waged on southern Lebanon.’
