on the Israeli-Lebanese border, 2006

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I saw a description of what is supposed to have happened:
    and wondered whether anyone here can judge its probable accuracy.
    I was surprised that the Hezbollah fighters could cross into Israel undetected, and astonished at the idea that mortars could be used at short range without endangering the side that was firing them. Mistranslation?
    If they need correcting, the address is feedback@haaretz.co.il
  2. Why do you ask? How do you think it happened?
  3. There is a very large thread on Arrse where this is discussed. I think its the "Jewish Panzers march North" thread?
  4. Ho ho ho. "Jewish panzers". :roll:
  5. Ronnie123456:

    Why do I ask? Because one part of the description surprised me, and another astonished me (see above). I thought someone reading this might have a better understanding. If that someone is you, I would be grateful to hear what you think.

    What do I think happened? I don't know, which is why I read about it and ask for the opinion of knowledgeable people. If that includes you ... (see above)
  6. I don't understand why you find the Haaretz article (or what Hezbollah did) so unbelievable.
  7. I don't find Haaretz extremely believable in and of itself, I do find them more believable than.., umm, lets say: Electronic Intifada, CounterPunch, IndyMedia, The Guardian, The Independant, The Socialist Worker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, etc; on topics regarding Israel.

    Anyway, here is wikipedia description of the Zar'it-Shtula incident for what it's worth.
  8. And from wikipedia? Worth even less than the organs you describe.

    There was some confusion at the time as I remember, as to the exact location of the ambush?
  9. No, not really. It's better than some, worse than others.
