What's going on? No time to report here on Indymedia? "The cross-border fighting is the worst between Israel and Lebanon since 1996 when Israeli troops still occupied part of southern Lebanon."
Conc.: More Israeli war crimes.
You have to know the well from which you are drinking:
Google is owned by the same multi-national group which profits from the wars. Their own programmed computers and collaborators select and censor the 'latest news'. They are 'webstrippers' and 'gatekeepers', and their selection is always pro-Israel.
Best is always to try to find local and reliable news sources.
Al Jazeera has 'new owners' and can not be trusted anymore - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/rmwcs
But many excelent alternative media have sites like here in Beirut, in Aarabic, English, French etc. which I know are spoken in Lebanon.
Why don't we see any actual, honest and factual reporting here?
If I can file from abroad?

LEBANON: ISRAEL TARGETS BEIRUT AIRPORT AND HAMAS TV STATION
Beirut, 13 July (AKI) - Israeli warplanes on Thursday bombed Beirut's international airport as part of a widening military offensive against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon in the wake of the capture of two Israeli soldiers by the militant Shiite group.
Three runways at the airport that Israel says are used by Hezbollah to bring weapons into the country were targeted in the early morning raids. The terminal building and planes were not hit and it was not immediately clear how badly the raid had damaged the runways but the airport was closed.
In a separate attack on Thursday morning, Israeli military helicopters attacked the Hezbollah affiliated al-Manar television station. Six people were injured in the attack on al-Manar's's Beirut heardquarters, local reports said, however the station continued to be on air.
The airport attack followed a series of dawn Israeli airstrikes on Hezbollah southern Lebanon stronghold, with 22 people reported killed in the attacks. Israel said it is responding to the capture of the two soldiers and deaths of eight others in clashes with Hezbollah guerillas on the Israel-Lebanon border on Wednesday.
Israeli premier Ehud Olmert has said the Lebanese government should be held responsible for Hezbollah's border raid. He also accused Syria and Iran of sponsoring Hezbollah's actions.
The cross-border fighting is the worst between Israel and Lebanon since 1996 when Israeli troops still occupied part of southern Lebanon. Israel withdrew its troops from Lebanon in 2000.
