UN Observer Force crying over Hezbullah deaths

The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force in the Golan Heights says that Israel carried out Sunday's strike with drones (not helicopters as previously reported) and says that the strike violated the disengagement agreement.
The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force in the Golan Heights released an official statement on Monday describing its troops' witness accounts of the incident. According to the statement, the observers saw two unmanned aircraft coming in from the Israeli side of the border and crossing the demilitarized zone at UN position number 30 near the village Masada in the northern Golan Heights.
The peacekeepers "observed two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying from the Alpha side and crossing the ceasefire line," UNDOF said in its statement, referring to the Israeli side of the border.
The UN observers lost sight of the aircraft as their approached the UN position, the statement said, and an hour later saw smoke arising from the general direction of the position. The origin of the smoke could not be identified, the statement added.
Soon after the observers saw the UAVs flying in from the area of Position 30 and over the Jabbata crossing of the cease-fire line.
"This incident is a violation of the 1974 Agreement on Disengagement between Israeli and Syrian forces," the UN said in its statement.
Before the UN criticizes Israel, it needs to ask itself what Iranian and Hezbullah forces are doing in the Golan.  The only Syrian forces in the area - the rebels - are apparently AOK with what happened.
