Earlier this summer two UN observers were killed by an Israeli air-strike… and the PRC took a hit, again. So the UN adds to the resolution an order for Israel not to invade Lebanese air space. Israel ignores this provision of the cease fire agreement and fly it’s missions north anyway. As cordial as the terms might be between France, Germany, and Israel these days, it doesn’t take much to understand that European UN soldiers are probably not going to wait around to get shot if it looks like an Israeli warplane is targeting them. French troops almost fired at Israel jets: minister | International News | Reuters.com. And what happens when an Israeli fighter is downed by a UN NATO missile? A lot of swearing I imagine… not much else. Somebody just can’t seem to stay inside the lines.
