But yiii? How come? Israel has no interest in Lebanon except in helping (the moderate Lebanese) get rid of the extremist “down there”!
Rym Ghazal reporting in the Daily Star shows (in english) the contradictions in the above theory:
The Lebanese Army on Wednesday dismantled drainage pipes installed by the Israeli Army near Kfar Kila to divert rainwater into Lebanon, as UNIFIL said that Israel had not violated Lebanese territory in the process. Troops from the Lebanese Army, in the presence of French and Spanish peacekeepers, removed the pipes and filled in ditches dug on Tuesday by Israeli troops after crossing the UN Blue Line in Adaisseh, near the Israeli-Lebanese border.
The Lebanese Army Command released a statement on Wednesday outlining the operation. “A tall sand wall was built as a shield in response to the [Israeli] violation in order to prevent the diversion of rainwater into Lebanon and causing damages to the properties of Leb-anese citizens,” it said.
Al Akhbar already had an article on water diversion (in arabic) a couple of weeks ago. So just to refresh the memory of those who live in denial, or to those who never came to this blog: Israel will rip off the hell out of Lebanon whenever the opportunity arises. It makes one wonder how vicious the Israeli are that they could build pipelines amidst the unfolding events of the war, and taken into consideration that they were losing big time. As if they were saying: “At least, let’s try to get out with something!”
