it's just getting worse in the middle east

israel defends its attack on the lebanese village of qana by insisting rockets were being fired from there. the jerusalem post:

some 150 rockets were fired from the lebanese village of qana over the past 20 days, air force chief of staff brig.-gen. amir eshel said on sunday evening.

speaking to reporters, eshel added that hizbullah rocket launchers were hidden in civilian buildings in the village, showing a video footage of rocket launchers being driven into the village following launches.
that might be true, but we doubt those rockets were fired by the 15 disabled children killed in the attack. the australian:

fifteen physically or mentally handicapped children were among 52 people killed by israeli raids on the village of qana in south lebanon overnight, a lebanese mp said today.

"there were 15 physically or mentally handicapped children among the children killed in qana," said bahia hariri, who represents south lebanon.

mr hariri, who presides over several charitable organisations, said several families had already been evacuated towards the city of sidon but some families of the handicapped had wanted to stay.
other reports say most of the dead are women and children.
