War on the Lebanese Border

On Friday and Saturday, I wrote about the tense situation in Lebanon.

This morning, (Tuesday), Israel attacked across the Lebanese border. What makes this different from previous Israeli incursions is the target. Previous Israeli attacks have been against Hezbollah, (the "Shiite Militia" or "Terrorist Organization", depending on your perspective). This time Israel is fighting the Lebanese Army.

So far the only coherent report I can find is from Al Jazeera; Rula Amin from Beirut, and Jacky Rowland in Jerusalem.

No doubt, dear reader, you will be greatly comforted to note that the UN is calling on both sides to exercise restraint. Because that has just worked so well in the past.
