Summer War 2007

Has it started?

From Jerusalem Post:

UN peacekeeping force in South Lebanon (UNIFIL) called Sunday's Katyusha rocket attack from Lebanon into Israel a "serious breach" of cease-fire, and urged all parties to exercise maximum restraint.

"Today's rocket attack from south Lebanon is considered a serious violation of Security Council Resolution 1701 and serious breach of cessation of hostilities agreement," said Yasmina Bouziane, a spokeswoman for the UN Interim Force in Lebanon.

The UN reaction coincided with a demand by a high ranking IDF officer in the Northern Command that UNIFIL take action and fulfill its mandate to prevent further attacks into Israel's sovereign territory.

Earlier Sunday evening, four Katyusha rockets were fired on Kiryat Shmona, causing damage but no injuries.
The Southern Front has Gaza turned into Hamastan, which could resume firing Qassams at any time, and possibly augment them with longer-range rockets smuggled across the Egypt-Gaza border.

The Northern Front now has Hizbollah (or was it a pro-Syrian terrorist group?) firing Katyushas into Israel.

It is always difficult to differentiate between sporadic attacks and the onset of a full-scale war.

But it's a pressure cooker around Israel waiting to explode.

For the benefit of the Six Day War revisionists, that's explode inwards, rather than outwards.
