Members of the Coalition for Justice and Accountability drew attention to Ya'alon's leading role in the 1996 shelling of a United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) compound in Qana, Lebanon. Under the supervision of Ya'alon, Israeli armed forces repeatedly targeted the compound, killing 106 civilians and wounding hundreds of others. Ya'alon is currently facing a civil suit in US Federal Court on charges stemming from his involvement in the Qana attack. [MORE]

What do Lebanese want? Lebanese Public Opinion. Well, there is a new public opinion survey released by the Beirut Center (thanks Abdo for sending it to me).

“Hizbullah was better” — by Israeli war correspondent
Published August 23rd, 2006 in News and Events and Beirut 2006.
Evaluation of the July 2006 War by an Israeli war correspondent.

“The balance sheet of the second Lebanon War certainly does not point to an IDF victory. Even in points, it’s closer to a loss than to an achievement, when taking into account the home front’s extended suffering.”
