UN Repairing Roads For HizballahTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
The most incredible story of the day is Tuesday's report from the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon showing that the United Nations is busily repairing damaged roads in Hizballah-controlled areas, the very roads that the IAF bombed specifically to impede Hizballah movement (Hat tip - Little Green Footballs):
UNIFIL is still facing serious restrictions in its freedom of movement due to the ongoing hostilities and the extensive destruction of roads and bridges throughout the area of operation. Yesterday, a UNIFIL engineering contingent from China managed to do some repairs on a key road artery between Tyre and Naqoura, and the road is now usable for traffic. However, more road destruction was reported in various areas in the south.No wonder Israel doesn't trust the UN. This, on top of UNIFIL doing absolutely nothing while Hezbollah kidnapped Israeli soldiers and rocketed Israel for over two years.
