In the past few minutes, Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the UN has said Israel has breached the ceasefire today.
Israel invaded eastern Lebanon this morning, sending troops in by helicopter to kill a senior Hizbollah figure. Israel claims it was to stop weapons coming over the border.
Israel says it was acting to prevent Hizbollah breaching the ceasefire (by importing weapons) – but they forgot that it isn’t their right to do that, only the UN can. It would be similar to Hizbollah attacking Israeli troops because they haven’t left Lebanon as required by the Resolution.
The Israeli intruders were found and an Israeli soldier and three Hizbollah fighters died in the fight that followed.
