Israel says map 'error' led to attack of UN post in Lebanon
« on: September 14, 2006, 06:19:08 PM »
MONTREAL (AFP) -        Israel has determined its air strike on a UN observer post in Lebanon that killed four        United Nations peacekeepers, including a Canadian, was an error due to an incorrect map, a report said.

CBC News said it had obtained a briefing by an Israeli official on an internal Israeli military report, which concluded the July 25 air strike occurred because Israeli ground forces were using an incorrect, hand-drawn map.

The strike occurred during the 34-day conflict in July and August between Israel and the Shiite militia Hezbollah, based in southern Lebanon.

Based on information in the briefing, the map used by the Israeli artillery identified the clearly marked UN post in the Khiyam area of southern Lebanon as a Hezbollah base.

"The report points to the fact that there was an error on our side in the maps that were done manually at the time of the combat," Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev, who gave the briefing to the CBC, was quoted as saying.

"The UN position -- we had it as a Hezbollah target. This was an error," he told the state-owned television and radio broadcaster.

The killing of the four UN observers -- an Austrian, a Canadian, a Finn and a Chinese man -- drew strong condemnation by UN Secretary General        Kofi Annan.

CBC News said the briefing reports Israeli forces received a number of warnings from the United Nations urging them to stop shooting so close to the base.

An earlier UN report said their observers in Lebanon had repeatedly contacted the Israeli military prior to the bombing.

The message was received by Israeli forces on the ground, who stopped firing on the post, according to the Israeli briefing. But apparently the warnings were not received by the Israeli air force, CBC News said.

after checking out this train on thought section for a few days, it is clear to me that you are the last person to question the nerve of anyone.  99% of the dumb shit I have read here in the last week came out of your dumb mouth.

i wonder what this hand drawn map looked like, maybe just a picture of lebanon marked hezbullah

Its laughable an military like israel relies on such primitive measures, this is no explanation considering it was an air attack that took out the UN base

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?
