July 23, 2006 § Leave a comment

“Brig. Gen. Gal Hirsch of the Galilee Division, the unit pressing the offensive into southern Lebanon, said the army’s objectives were to clear out Hezbollah posts and were not part of a long-term plan to assert Israeli control over the Lebanese communities that dot the rugged hills. “We do not intend to occupy Lebanon,” he said in an interview in Yiron, Israel, just across the border from Lebanon.” (G. Myre; J. Mouawad, NYT)
