Lebanon Says Its Soldier Acted on His Own to Kill Sgt. Cohen

Lebanese shirked from responsibility for the murder of Sgt. Shlomi Cohen and explained that the Lebanese soldier who shot and killed him acted on his own.

UNIFIL confirmed the Lebanese claim and said, “All the circumstances of this incident are not clear at this time, but preliminary findings indicate that it was an individual action by a soldier in contravention of the existing operational rules and procedures.”

The IDF is conducting its own investigation amid questions of why Sgt. Cohen was traveling alone and in an unprotected vehicle.

Maj. Gen. Paolo Serra, head of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, said that the shooting “must remain an isolated incident.” Serra convened an emergency meeting with Lebanese and Israeli officers after the shooting to ease tensions.

Israel filed a complaint to the United Nations, and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned the murder.

  1. Ben II says:

    that’s an act of war, turn him over or else. Coward Bibi is doing nothing.

  2. I pray for the young man who died in this attack and for the peace of Israel. It seems that all of the conclusions to the wars against Israel over the years amount to about the same thing as a cease fire. It reminds me of the US/N. Korean war which has been in a cease fire for more than 60 years. All of the talk about a new agreement seems to only be aimed at another agreement that looks to be breakable. The Bible does state that an agreement with Israel will be made starting the 7 (360 day year) year tribulation period. The prophecies in the Bible have been taking place all around us now for decades, yet people seem all too willing to write them off as coincidence or just don't believe they are ACTUAL fulfillment of God's word. This is the first time frame in history where we have so many end times prophecies occurring at the same time. Earthquakes in diverse places, wars and rumors of wars, starvation, illnesses, and people traveling to and fro and knowledge increased. In just the last few decades man has started traveling in mass by means of flight. Our homes have pluming and heating, electric lights, cloths washers, dish washers, TV's and computers, and the BIG one,,, Israel is back as a nation.The rapture of the Church is on the verge of taking place. When that happens there will be no real Christians in the world for a brief time and the antichrist will quickly take control of a new one world government. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
