Senior Hezbollah official killed in Lebanon blast
Haaretz ^

Posted on 10/12/2009 12:42:38 PM PDT by Fali_G

A senior official of the Hezbollah militant group was killed on Monday evening when an explosion rocked a house apparently serving as a munitions bunker in south Lebanon.

At least five other people were killed in the blast, which took place in a three-story building in the southern Lebanese village of Tayr Filsi, on the southern bank of the Litani River.

The identity of the militant has not yet been confirmed, but security sources listed his son among the fatalities.

The area was cordoned off and Hezbollah could not be reached for comment.

Accident? Or the Mossad? I guess we’ll never know...

Either way, good result!

"a house apparently serving as a munitions bunker in south Lebanon."

But the UNIFIL peace keepers (over 10,000 at last count) and French soliders are supposed to be stationed in South Lebannon on a mission to keep South Lebannon from being re-militarized by Hezbollah.....how can this be?????

UN resolution 1701 includes these main demands to be followed:

Hezbollah to be disarmed

No paramilitary forces, including (and implying) Hezbollah, will be south of the Litani River

Another stunning epic fail by the useless, toothless UN

Based on the location it would appear more likely an act of God.

My first reaction was that this was another Mossad hit on Hezbollah, that may still be the case, but the fact that Israel is coming out and demanding UNIFIL to investigate this makes it look more like a Hezbollah blunder rather than anything covert.

then that’s one monumental blunder - it’s one thing if a weapons depot goes KABOOM with a couple underlings in the building, it’s a whole other level of screw up if there is a head honcho present

Ive heard there were secondary explosions, which points to an ammo dump. I just dont think Israel would want to push UNIFIL to investigate something if its own fringerprints were there.

But then again....

AP: “The Lebanese army issued a statement saying an Israeli reconnaissance plane flew over south Lebanon earlier Monday...”

Who knows....

They might need to rethink the part of their terrorist graduation ceremony that includes a live demonstration of their prowess at suicide bombing...

Well, it was a live demonstration right up to the point where it went 'kaboom'...

That last sentence will eventually be true all the time.
