UNIFIL troops attacked

Last night, a Dutch friend of mine received a text message that informed us that UNIFIL troops had been attacked in Khiam. So far, three Columbians and two Spaniards are dead.

There have been reports that members of Fatah al-Islam confessed to plots to attack UNIFIL, but I can’t help think that whoever did this must be pretty professional to have gotten past UNIFIL and Hezbollah. This attack follows a rocket attack on Israel in the south that also went unclaimed.

If there’s one thing that recent history has taught us, it’s that it’s never a good thing when UN peacekeepers start getting targeted.
