UN-run post caught in IDF-Hizbullah crossfire
07/21/2006
A UN-run observation post near the border was struck during fighting between Israel and Hizbullah operatives on Friday, while Israel pushed ahead with air strikes on Lebanon and warned people in the south to flee as it prepared for a possible ground invasion on Friday. The IDF said Hizbullah rockets hit the UN post near Zar'it, but a UN officer said it was an artillery shell fired by the IDF. The facility was severely damaged, but nobody was injured as the Ghanian troops manning the post were inside bomb shelters at the time of the strike, the UN official said.
