Hizbollah’s way of fighting a war

December 6, 2006

Israel’s Intelligence and Terrorism Information Centre has released a 300-page report, partly sourced from declassified IDF intelligence material, on the tactics employed by Hizbollah in fighting its war(s) against Israel. The focus is on the deliberate use of the civilian infrastructure and populations to provide shields against Israeli retaliation.

The report is here.

It’s a good thing to have it all so well documented. We knew most of this from day one of the conflict in Lebanon, but somehow it never really got onto the radar of public consciousness.

Interesting to see how this plays in the MSM. So far, reactions I’ve seen have been fairly muted.

Carl in Jerusalem has more.

Update: The New York Times carefully steps around the principal charges facts, whilst not ignoring them. It’s a good example of how the MSM has treated this issue since the beginning of the July-August war.

In particular, note the anodyne headline: Offering Video, Israel Answers Critics on War. Nothing about Hizbollah war crimes to grab the eye there.
