An Irish television channel has admitted it “was not correct” in its coverage of Ariel Sharon, after reporting that the former Israeli prime minister led the Sabra and Shatila massacre in Beirut in 1982.
No organisation took responsibility for the missiles fired from Lebanon into Israel last weekend.
Five Katyusha rockets were launched but only one landed on Israeli territory, in an open field by the town of Kiryat Shmona. No damage or casualties resulted. IDF artillery fired a number of salvoes towards the launch-area in south Lebanon.
No-one took seriously the claims by “Battalions of Ayesha” — a fictional terror group — that it had planted the massive car-bomb that ripped through a south Beirut neighbourhood last Thursday, killing at least 27 people and wounding over 200.
