Israel Must Stop Lebanon from Becoming the New Gaza

(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - Unlike previous incidents of rocket fire from Lebanon on Israel in recent months that were launched from improvised launchers, Wednesday's attack was carried out by a more precise military-grade, multi-barreled Katyusha rocket launcher positioned on a truck located north of the Litani River, near the town of Mahmoudiya, which is controlled by Hizbullah. The road to the village was bombed in a subsequent Israeli airstrike, cutting access to the town where steep terrain makes any alternative access impossible. The bombed road is a vital transportation route in the Marjayoun district. Hizbullah forces and Lebanese troops deployed in the south could easily prevent such attacks by Palestinian factions but don't.
