Canadian General: UN Observer Post Used By HizballahTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
File this under "Damned Interesting Info."
Retired Canadian Major General Lewis Mackenzie was interviewed on CBC radio, and offered some intriguing insights about the UN observer post hit by Israeli shells; the Canadian peacekeeper killed there had previously emailed Mackenzie telling him that Hizballah was using their post as cover.

We received emails from him a few days ago, and he was describing the fact that he was taking fire within, in one case, three meters of his position for tactical necessity, not being targeted. Now that's veiled speech in the military. What he was telling us was Hezbollah soldiers were all over his position and the IDF were targeting them. And that's a favorite trick by people who don't have representation in the UN. They use the UN as shields knowing that they can't be punished for it.Listen to the entire interview here.
