Bad Headline Day

"Rockets Hit Lebanon Despite Cease-Fire" reads an AP headline yesterday which accompanies an article by Steven R. Hurst.

So, it would seem, at least according to the headline, that the ever-belligerent Israel is still attacking Lebanon, ceasefire or not. But, those who get past the headline know that it is Hezbollah rockets hitting Lebanon, not Israeli fire. The second paragraph of the article reads:

Highlighting the fragility of the peace, Hezbollah guerrillas fired at least 10 Katyusha rockets that landed in southern Lebanon early Tuesday, the Israeli army said, adding that nobody was injured. The army said that none of the rockets, which were fired over a two-hour period, had crossed the border and so it had not responded.
