Israel Becomes The First Party To Violate The Ceasefire Terms

Israel may argue that they were acting in self defense terms in the raid on Hezbollah to prevent a resupply by Syria or a future incident. Yet both sides did agree to a ceasefire and should fully honor the agreed to terms. It will quickly become a slippery slope that could lead to a new all-out breakout of warfare again if either Israel or Hezbollah begin to find justifications to violate ceasefire terms.

Hezbollah needs to return the two captive soldiers that triggered this crisis and stop any future rearming from Iran or Syria. And Israel must resist ant temptation towards the all-out combat that caused so much destruction of lebanon and left far too many innocent civilians homeless, wounded or dead.

Any return to open warfare is absolutely unaccceptable. The world community and volunteer peacekeeper states need to make peace work in Lebanon, and return the region to peace and rebuilding.
