Ramon: IDF should escalate attacks on s. Lebanon

Justice Minister Haim Ramon stated on Thursday that the IDF should escalate its attacks against towns in southern Lebanon, citing Bint Jbeil as a specific example. He asserted that the civilians in those towns have already left - or have been instructed to leave - and so the only people left were Hizbullah operatives. Ramon told Channel 2 that in such a case, the IDF should use artillery and air force, calling in infantry only when there remains no other option.
