In South Lebanon, farmers are killed by Israeli mines
A farmer was killed and another wounded as their tractor was blown by an Israeli mine in South Lebanon. Eight years after its withdrawal from South Lebanon, Israel still refuses to disclose the locations of the mines it has planted, although it was summoned to do that by the UN on more than one occasion. But the UN summons do not apply to Israel, that much is known. And just imagine what would happen to Lebanon if a kibbutzim was killed and another wounded by a mine left by the Lebanese Resistance. A wild guess: months of mayhem under the complacent eyes of the same UN, and to the cheers of the "International Community"?
