Sam, I would give that Wikopedia citation some time to be edited for accuracy. To begin with we still have no certain idea how many Lebanese are under rubble at this time. It is clear, that the IDF, which in the past had managed to keep civilian casualties to a minimum did not show the same scruples in this war. It can be said that accepting existing numbers, including the IDF estimate of Hizbollah dead, that Israel killed twice as many civilians as Hisbollah, and that Hizbollah killed twice as many IDF as civilians. For the most part the intent of both was to inflict massive harm upon the infrastructure and civilian populations of the opponent. Israel was more successful because it had much more effective systems. The low civilian casualty count in Israel was not doe to Hizbollah having more scruples than the IDF. The unguided rocket is poor strategic weapon. For both parties this was a war against the other nation's people rather than just soldiers.
