UN Tanks Face Down Illegal Israeli Checkpoint (Pictures)


Now this story is a few days old but it took us a bit of time to find the right images for it. In brief, the IDF had been setting up flying checkpoints in the Lebanese town of Marwaheen in clear violation of UNSC R 1701 and with the support of several armored vehicles. In return the UN sent it its own armor to facedown the Israelis and force them to withdraw from the area. There was a faceoff for about 20 mins and then the Israelis withdrew after having been assured that the area would be patrolled by UN observers...and thats the long and short of it!
