Israel says it is because Hizbollah have forced civilians to stay in the town “at gunpoint”, and so Israel has to be very careful. Didn’t stop them in the rest of the country.
On a day when Israel has called up tens of thousands more troops, it seems like poor excuses for poor performance.
1967 – The West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Sinai, the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem in 6 days.
2006 – One and a half villages in 15 days.
