The New York Times reports the news

Here's how the New York Times reported Sunday night's news of a sniper attack on Israeli troops on the Lebanese border:

You can't make this stuff up, so I didn't.

By the way, Lebanese sources reported this morning that the soldier who murdered Sergeant Major Shlomi Cohen HY"D (May God Avenge his blood) 'turned himself in.'

Even the Beirut Daily Star has no mention of retaliatory fire for the incident, which UNIFIL says took place took place on the Israeli side of the border. It also has no mention of a Lebanese soldier having been killed as is claimed by the Times.
Around midnight, Israeli forces were patrolling the area where the shooting had taken place and identified “suspicious movements,” said Lt. Libby Weiss, a spokeswoman for the Israeli military. She added that “due to the perceived threat” that they posed, the Israeli soldiers had fired “precise shots” at two suspects, who were believed to have been involved in the earlier shooting of Sergeant Cohen.
Lieutenant Weiss said that the two suspects were members of the Lebanese armed forces and that one was apparently killed.
“It is in nobody’s interest for things to escalate but it is our right to defend our border,” she added.
Well, maybe. JPost quotes IDF sources as saying that it's not clear whether any Lebanese soldiers were hit by the return fire from the second incident.

But you don't think the Times is biased or something, do you?
