Interesting. Did Ban ki Moon actually pressure the IDF, Luc?
i don't know; i know he "condemned" Israel but who knows what happened on the ground level.
A 3rd person viewpoint would clear up that story anyway. Israel is watching out for HA's rearmament in the south. they see a guy that keeps crossing the border over and over again, so they detain him for questioning. they find out that he's an insignificant pawn and release him a few hours later.
