Bloggers raise questions about Kana | Jerusalem Post

Bloggers raise questions about Kana | Jerusalem Post

The Jerusalem Post reports that that the IDF is inestigating some of the discrepancies noted, by bloggers, in the Qana affair.

The IDF is looking into allegations raised over the past few days by several pro-Israel, Jewish and conservative Weblogs that Hizbullah may have staged aspects of the Kana tragedy on Sunday, in which some 60 Lebanese bodies were removed from a building that collapsed seven hours after being hit in an Israel Air Force strike.

The dead were mainly children, women and elderly people.

The International Committee of the Red Cross Mission in Israel said Tuesday that it would inform its Swiss headquarters about the allegations and seek to clarify the questions raised.

I have discussed over the past couple days, but something I had previously missed was claims by the IDF that the had intelligence that Qana was abandonded:

According to Elon, the IDF had "sources and information which were sure that civilians had left the area after warning pamphlets were dropped," but the information turned out to be mistaken.
