We interrupt this broadcast...

In addition to dropping leaflets telling residents of southern Lebanon that Hizbullah and its leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah have brought ruin to Lebanon, Israel over the weekend managed to interrupt broadcasts on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV station and screen anti-Nasrallah propaganda on the channel. The Israeli material showed a clip from one of Nasrallah's own recent TV broadcasts in which he acknowledged that Israel's air force was too strong for Hizbullah to grapple with. This was followed by footage of the IAF destroying Hizbullah targets. The Israeli-introduced material also featured a photo of Nasrallah with a gunsight superimposed on his features. A third clip featured an Arab-language voiceover warning that Nasrallah was dragging Hizbullah to disaster and that he was lying to the Lebanese about what was happening on the battlefield.
