Report confirmed: IDF officer killed on Lebanese border today

Israel Radio reports (6:00 pm) that Northern sector commander Gadi Eizencott has partially confirmed my report here. Eizencott said that two senior officers were seriously wounded. He did not provide any more details.

Israel Radio now reports (a few minutes later in the same broadcast) that a battalion commander with the rank of Lt. Col., Dov Harari (45) was killed today in Lebanon and another commander was seriously wounded and is in Rambam Hospital in Haifa.

Eizencott also said that the IDF had stopped firing to allow the LAF to retrieve its wounded, and the LAF opened sniper fire half an hour later on a tank.

More details when I have them.

UPDATE 6:11 PM

In the rush to get this out, I may not have translate Eizencott entirely accurately.

What he said was that the IDF was ambushed while doing work, they returned fire, then stopped firing to let the LAF (at the LAF's request) retrieve bodies and wounded, and then got 'sucker punched' with an RPG shot at a tank.

Wake up Israel...

No good deed goes unpunished....

The world (including the current US admin) has thrown Israel under the bus.

Now is not the time to be soft...

Be Prepared....

If every life of ours is worth 1000 of theirs, given the exchange rate for terrorists in prison and kidnapped jews, then we need to make sure the exchange rate holds in death as well.
