Kofi Annan Says Israel’s Fatal Attack on UN Force in Lebanon was “Apparently Deliberate”
Israeli bombs fell on an observer post for the United Nations peacekeeping force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL. Four observers were killed in the blast which UN Secretary General Kofi Annan called “apparently deliberate.”
Israeli officials have agreed to launch an investigation into the incident but deny that the attack was intentional. We are joined on the telephone from Beirut by Timur Goksel. He is a former spokesperson and senior advisor for UNIFEL, the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon. He teaches at Notre Dame University and the American University of Beirut.
