Another attack on UNIFIL

An-Nahar reported this afternoon that UNIFIL was attacked again. (The AP has a more complete report here.) This time it was a Tanzanian contingent outside of Tyre. Thankfully there were no casualties. Both Amal and Hezbollah condemned the attack immediately.

I know it’s hard to keep security in Lebanon, but the fact that this is the second attack in a month on UNIFIL (presumably by Sunni groups that may or may not have ties to al-Qaida) really doesn’t look good for Hezbollah’s ability to police the south.
