Berri Questions Silence over Israeli Border Violation: Turkish Pilots Musn't Be Harmed http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/93918-berri-questions-silence-over-israeli-border-violation-turkish-pilots-musn-t-be-harmed
Commenting on the Israeli violation on Wednesday, Berri wondered: “Why is it that an uproar is created over Syrian border violations and eery silence prevails over Israeli ones?” He warned that the ambivalence over the violation has demonstrated that some sides have accepted them and that “the psychological barrier with Israel has been broken in that they no longer view it as an enemy.” It is no easy feat for Israeli troops to infiltrate Lebanese territory by 400 meters, meaning that the latest violation should be considered “blatant” and it should not be dealt with lightly, said the speaker. He criticized the Lebanese official silence over the issue, while United Nations Interim Force Commander Major General Paolo Serra was quick to condemn it. Four Israeli soldiers were injured in a landmine blast along the northern border with Lebanon, media reports said on Wednesday. A Lebanese army communique said that the “Israeli patrol violated Lebanon's sovereignty." "An infantry patrol of the Israeli army penetrated 400 meters inside Lebanon in the Labbouneh area at 00:24 local time," the statement said. "An explosion took place and the soldiers were wounded, with blood found at the scene. A military committee has opened an investigation in coordination with UNIFIL," the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, it said.
[ed notes:enough is enough,there must be reciprocal actions,period,or else the blatant violations will continue,and if UNIFIL cant stop it,they send them home packing,because i see nothing but silent and sometimes what ammounts to backchannel colusion between both...if they cant stop zionist state and arent willing then what purpose does the mandate serve?
