Representatives for the families of soldiers that fell in the Second Lebanon War gathered on Tuesday in front of the Prime Minister's office in Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported. The families requested to present to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert findings from independent investigations they themselves conducted into the circumstances leading up to their sons' deaths during the summer's fighting with Hizbullah. According to the report, the families were also demonstrating their frustration for being denied access to the findings of IDF investigations, access they claimed they had been promised by the government following the war that killed 116 IDF soldiers. Olmert had reportedly agreed to meet with each of the families separately, but refused meetings with the representative of their organization, Israel Radio said.
