Photos that Damn HezbollahKinda hard to complain about "civilian deaths" when all the combatants are dressed up as civilians. It's also a bit, say, hypocritical, to complain about Lebanese "civilian" deaths when Hezbollah exclusively targets Israeli civilians (who aren't combatants, by the way).
THIS is the picture that damns Hezbollah. It is one of several, smuggled from behind Lebanon's battle lines, showing that Hezbollah is waging war amid suburbia.
The images, obtained exclusively by the Sunday Herald Sun, show Hezbollah using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy-calibre weapons.
Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, the militants carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon.
The release of the images comes as Hezbollah faces criticism for allegedly using innocent civilians as "human shields".
Mr Egeland blasted Hezbollah as "cowards" for operating among civilians.
"When I was in Lebanon, in the Hezbollah heartland, I said Hezbollah must stop this cowardly blending in among women and children," he said.
Secondly, are you trying to manufacture outrage and stir up emotion? Why don't you cart around a dead child for photo shoots? Each dead child will last for about 6 photo sessions.
In this first of the two sequences, we see a shot by Reuters and taken by Adnan Hajj, timed at 2:21 pm.Check the link for the damning photos and more updates.
The next shot in this sequence is credited to AP's Kevin Frayer. Timed at 4.09 pm, it shows the same "rescue" worker
Just in case you missed it, however, we get another view, courtesy of Reuter's Adnan Hajj, with a time given of 4:30 pm - some 20 minutes after the first shot.
But now, timed at 12:45 pm, an hour and twenty minutes before the child's body is pictured being pulled from the ruins, we get a picture from AP's Kevin Frayer of the same child's body being paraded by our ubiquitous helmeted rescue worker.
At 12.53 pm, after an interval of eight minutes, Frayer photographs the child's body again, from a different angle. The caption is the same. This time, though, our helmeted worker is showing some distress, which was absent in the previous photograph.
Then, timed at 1:01 pm, eight minutes on, we get another picture from Frayer.
