JERUSALEM - Israeli troops on Monday in southern Lebanon shot two Hezbollah guerrillas during a clash in southern Lebanon, the army said. The army said the soldiers opened fire after guerrillas approached the force in a "threatening manner." It identified hitting two of the three militants in the group.

The clash underscored the fragility of a week-old truce that ended 34 days of fighting. Israel is keeping troops in southern Lebanon until Lebanese troops and U.N. peacekeepers take up positions.

Lesson learned by the Hezbollah: Don't give the IDF the finger.

Israeli soldiers shoot three Hizbollah gunmen: army


http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060821/ts_nm/mideast_lebanon_wounded_dc

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli troops shot and wounded three Hizbollah guerrillas in southern Lebanon on Monday, an Israeli army spokesman said, as the army maintained positions in the territory ahead of a planned pullout.

"A force identified armed gunmen coming toward them in a threatening way," the spokesman said. "The soldiers fired at them and identified three hits."

It was unclear whether the guerrillas were killed.

Fist time I've seen a floppy helmet cover on a US troop (Marine) ala the IDF. A great idea IMHO.

Look again. I think the cover is for his desert goggles and not for the entire helmet.

Don't worry about that smashed house, sir. President Bush went on TV this morning and promised to put it back just the way it was.

Why did the AP "journalist" use quotations around "threatening manner"? All he did was highlight his bias, which isn't nessesary. The AP tag does that.

They aren't Hezbollah Gorilla's either, they are terrorists, plain and simple.

Don't you know the Marines are itching for revenge for the barracks?

I am so disgusted with Olmert. Liberals are such hand-wringing traitors.

Does the helmet cover break up the shape of the helmet in order to camouflage the soldier?

What is it for, specifically?

Helmet covers serve several purposes. 1. Can be changed quickly to a color/pattern that matches the terrain you are heading into. 2. Cloth is quieter when brush is dragging across it. 3. Slits in cover will hold small plants as added camouflage. 4. Protects the paint on the Kevlar helmet. 5. Better to wipe your nose on then the hard helmet. 6. Enables soldier/marine to felt tip obscene names and slogans onto cover and then replace it with a new one when NCO or Officer spots his artwork.

Thanks for answering for me.
BTW, Wifee and I just got back from watching WTC and we are in a Jihad hating mood that overpowers our Christian upbringing.
