Israel gives Syria ultimatum.

The London-based Arabic language newspaper Al-Hayat reported Saturday that “Washington has information according to which Israel gave Damascus 72 hours to stop Hizbullah’s activity along the Lebanon-Israel border and bring about the release the two kidnapped IDF soldiers or it would launch an offensive with disastrous consequences.”
The report said “a senior Pentagon source warned that should the Arab world and international community fail in the efforts to convince Syria to pressure Hizbullah into releasing the soldiers and halt the current escalation Israel may attack targets in the country.”
“It is no coincidence that the Hizbullah operation comes at a time when the international community is working to impose sanctions on Iran due to its nuclear program and settle the score with Syria by establishing an international court to try those behind the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri,” the Pentagon source said.

Hezbollah fire the missile that damaged an Israeli warship off the Lebanese coast the night before.
One sailor was killed and three remain missing after the attack, reports CBS News correspondent Robert Berger in Jerusalem.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, said about 100 Iranian soldiers are in Lebanon and helped fire the Iranian-made, radar-guided C-102 at the ship that killed one and left three missing.
It seems that the Israeli troops have... learned much from us.
At least 15 people were killed Saturday in an Israeli air strike on a minibus in southern Lebanon, Lebanese security sources said.
The vehicle was travelling on a coastal road between Sharmaa and Bayada. According to the security sources, those inside were civilians fleeing the violence.
Images of recent atrocities by our forces in Iraq buzz around my head.
