Lebanese PM: IDF Strike Killed 1, Not 40
From the Department of Corrections Department:
The Lebanese prime minister said one person was killed in an Israeli air raid Monday in the southern border village of Houla, lowering the death toll from 40. Prime Minister Fuad Saniora said at a news conference that he had based the initial tally on unspecified information that he had received.
Oops! Can’t imagine how that might have happened. . . .
Strangely, I can’t think of a case during this conflict where the number of civilians killed by Israel was wildly underestimated and later corrected. There have now been at least two in the other direction.
