Israel pounds Beirut, Hizbullah DENIES Haifa attack
While Israel continues to destroy Lebanon, this crucial denial by Hizbullah was buried towards the end of the news report.
Olmert had ordered the army to intensify the offensive after a barrage of rockets hit towns in northern Israel, including the Mediterranean port city of Haifa, killing two people.If they didn't do it, then I'll give you three guesses to name WHO did.* * *
Hezbollah, which has threatened to avenge the "massacres" of Lebanese by Israel, DENIED however that it was involved the Haifa attack.
Meanwhile, based on this pretext Israelis play 'bombs away' in Beirut.
In a wave of strikes Friday, Israeli jets hit an airport hangar and fuel tanks, pounded Hezbollah's command headquarters in the Shiite-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut and a Palestinian guerrilla base in eastern Lebanon, as well as bridges and roads.A round of applause for Chirac for declaring the obvious.
Police said five people were killed on Friday, bringing to 62 the death toll in Lebanon since Israel unleashed what the military has called "Operation Just Reward."* * *
President Jacques Chirac of France, the former colonial power in Lebanon, said Israel appeared to "wish to destroy" Lebanon.
