Dear alonitzafoni, I think you are confused. Urban warfare takes place in towns and cities. That is the meaning of urban. As I understand it, Beit Lid is a rural village. I think the phrase you may have wanted to use anyway was urban guerilla warfare. But I think now on reflection your original use was right. When the IDF operates in Palestinian towns and cities it conducts urban warfare, not urban guerilla warfare. It doesn?t discriminate between civilian or enemy combatant, and it makes no attempt to win the hearts and minds of the local people. Anybody and everybody not in an IDF uniform is a legitimate target, whether they are carrying a gun or not. Yes, you are right. It is urban warfare, straight out of the manual of the Wehrmacht. Perhaps we should not be surprised. I?ve read on this site somewhere before that the Zionists who organized the first Israeli army were former German Army officers. I think its time for a review. Don?t you?
