My Mideast Punchlines: Nice work if you can get it…

The UN has ordered Israel to pay $1.1 million in damages to UN peacekeepers in Lebanon for defending itself from Hezbollah rocket fire back in 1996. The incident occurred after Hezbollah terrorists fired Katyusha rockets and mortars on Israel from behind the UN compound. Israel responded with airstrikes that mistakenly hit the UN compound, where the terrorists were hiding.

Small FistSo peacekeepers get paid for not keeping the peace. Nice work if you can get it.
