Israel continually breaks the UN resolution both on the ground and with its illegal overflights. This latest provocation is just one in a long list of IDF violations. Other nations conclude cease-fires and that's an end to it. Israel seems to have a psychological problem here, it is forever pushing its luck on the northern border, threatening the Lebanese government, blaming UNIFIL, talking about war and searching for pretexts to attack Hezbollah, Lebanon, anyone will do. It is a legacy from the victory in 1967, when all of Israeli tasted the heady brew of military triumph. Unfortunately, many of the rightist politicians and citizens yearn for more of the same, another fix of Jewish military supremacy and public euphoria. The Serbs and others went through that nationalist-racist military phase to, Israel will eventually come out of it, but how much longer is it going to take? The rest of the world is helping to build up the Lebanese government and military in order to cut Hezbollah down to size and that is bearing fruit. Israel is a decade behind the game, still smarting that it couldn't beat Hez in two wars and hankering to have another go. In this, it is a dangerous and aggressive nuisance that is seriously out of step with everyone else. Israel needs to keep behind the border fence and stop the continual ceasefire violations. It also, if it has any humanity, needs to do something practical to remove the zillions of unexploded ordnance it rained down on Lebanon in the past, which constitutes a present and serious danger to civilians, children, livestock, UNIFIL forces and the Lebanese army. Its indifference to the consequences of its actions makes it look like it enjoys revenge and is a callous and brutal nation.
