Makes perfect sense.Tareq Mitri said the area where Israel's activity took place was south of the Blue Line "but is Lebanese territory".
On the same URL where Reuters had published a picture of the Israeli army crane with a caption indicating the agency was in the process of "clarifying" the border location, Reuters has now removed the picture and replaced it with a photo of the crying daughter of a Lebanese soldier killed in the clash. The not-so subliminal message: The Israelis were technically justified in defending against an unprovoked attack by the Lebanese army BUT... look at the pain and suffering they've caused.
UPDATE 11:20 AM: In an effort to rationalize the non sequitur above, Reuters edits the original story, adding:
To be clear, there is no formal dispute with respect to the UN-drawn border at the point where the violence took place.Israel and Lebanon dispute parts of the Blue Line.
