Letter to the Editor

A Times reader makes Israel's case:

Sir, Unfortunately for Lebanon, when terrorists form part of your Government, you can’t disclaim responsibility for their military invasion of a neighbour country to kill and kidnap.

That’s an act of war and in war it is often necessary, and certainly legitimate, for the country that you attacked to bomb roads, bridges, airports, power stations and armaments storage that your side is using to wage war against them.

If your side’s rocket-launchers and gun factories are located in homes and residential areas, then they too are a legitimate target. If you don’t like it, stop it.

Bondi, Australia
