500 Injured, 9 Killed after 100 Rockets Fall On Israel...

The terrorist organization, Hezbollah, that has been largely operating with impunity in Southern Lebanon with the support of Syria, has rained death on Israeli citizens over the past few days. The recent conflict was triggered by a border attack by Hezbollah guerrillas that killed 8 IDF soldiers and took 2 hostage on July 12th.
In the last 24 hours, more than 100 Katyusha rockets were fired at northern communities. The residents spent the entire day in bomb shelters. On Saturday afternoon, Tiberias joined the list of rocket-battered communities, but rockets did not only land there.

Nahariy and Safed were attacked once and again and suffered great damages. About 34 rockets hit Safed by Saturday afternoon, while 24 rockets landed in Nahariya. Dozens were hurt and some buildings suffered a direct hit.
One may argue that Hezbollah is defending their territory, but they are not the Lebanese army but a militia that operated in Lebanon supported by Syria and Iran with the express intent of fighting and eliminating Israel. They are not a defensive force but an offensive organization. Additionally, in the 2005 elections in Lebanon, Hezbollah gained 28 of the 128 seats in Parliament, all from the southern part of Lebanon.

Its time that Israel eliminate Hezbollah since the United Nations, despite issuing a resolution for the disarmament of the organization, has been unable to do anything about these killers. As Putin has expressed, he thinks that Israel has a wider agenda than just seeking the return of the two kidnapped soldiers. Duh. Hopefully, Israel is seeking to destroy the organization since it would be doing us a huge favor. Fewer terrorists means less death rained on innocent civilians on both sides.
