(Communicated by IDF Spokesman)

Over the past day, IDF infantry, armored and engineering forces operated in southern Lebanon. The forces positioned themselves in the areas of Mis el Jabal, Mahibab Blida, Shihin, Rajmil and Majdal Zun, in the eastern part of southern Lebanon. At the same time, IDF forces established positions in the villages of Al Teibeh, Al Adeisa, Rab A-Tiltin, Aita a-Sha’ab and Maroun A-Ras and Bint Jbeil.

Yesterday evening an IDF soldier was killed and four more were wounded in exchanges of fire in the village of Aita A-Sha’ab. An IDF soldier was severely wounded and two soldiers were lightly wounded in the village of Mahbib.

In fighting throughout the day, IDF forces killed approximately 35 armed Hizbullah terrorists, and wounded numerous other Hizbullah terrorists.

In the area of Bint Jbeil, IDF forces identified and destroyed a vehicle carrying a Hizbullah missile launcher. Additional weapons were discovered by the force, including 10 assault rifles in the area around the village of Sheihin.

During the night the IDF carried out more than 120 aerial attacks in Lebanon:

6 missile launchers, including launchers used for long-range attacks against Afula and Haifa.

35 Hizbullah buildings, storage facilities and headquarters

Areas used to launch rocket into Israel, and roads and bridges leading to those areas.

"Israeli artillery shells earlier exploded in the hills of southern Lebanon, sometimes as many as 15 per minute. The military said its aircraft were hitting Hezbollah targets all over the country."

15 per minute, that'll clear out some land.

I was all of 10 or 11 when that song was going around...and it stuck in my mind. Very acidy. I liked the music of it then. Sort of went out of my mind. Then one day, my hubby who's a big Donovan fan mentioned a line from the song, and I managed to pull all the lyrics back up. Amazing what gets stored in the brain like that....

Does that mean he plans on returning the hostages they have? Assuming they are still in Lebanon and alive.

Isn't it odd that there have been no videos of long lines of refugees (Lebanese)? Are the hezzabaloos keeping them from leaving (which would seem normal) or are they really putting their money where their mouths are and sticking with the terrorists?

There was a BBC Documentary John Kegan's Soldiers back in the mid 80's. They were interviewing a veteran of the WWI. In that typical understated British manner he calmly describes demolishing an entire village with four rounds of 8" howitzer. And finishes by saying "There is really nothing like the opening of a full scale barrage".

I'm not sure where this observation belongs so I figured I place it here. Please accept this "vanity comment" with some grace, thank you.
I have seen many references to those Jews who do not support Israel and have sold their souls to liberalism as JINO's (Jews in name only). I find this to be not entirely correct and think I have found a better acronym for these Jews. JeBBO (Jews by birth only) {also could be written JBBO if brevity is required}.
Thank you for the patience with this Freeper's little vanity comment.

Dio, you don't have the lingo down yet. Terrorists are civilians(mostly women and children). Terrorists seldom die.

In Tyre, south Lebanon, Hizb'allah and UN terrorists fire missiles at, and murdering, Israeli civilians.
The UN is/was silent. Why not? They share bunkers with the terrorists.
The EU is/was silent. Why not? It is their way and their history. A bad moon is rising.


In Tyre, south Lebanon, Israeli air retaliation against terrorists near the village of Bayada.

The bombing of power plants has additional benefits.
1) Forces people to use generators consuming already scarce fuel supplies.
2) Its a big hit for the spirit of the enemy civilians. The lights are still on in Haifa and your in the dark.
3) Most water pumping stations use electric pumps. Knock out the power and then start a fire. Loads of fun.

I see some of that on CNN. Twenty people in a farmer's hay wagon, a family and their goats, that kind of stuff. Not hundreds and hundreds a huge line though. Looks as orderly as something like that could be, I guess.
