Israeli pilot deliberately missed targets

At least two Israeli fighter pilots have deliberately missed civilian targets in Lebanon as disquiet grows in the military about flawed intelligence. Sources say the pilots were worried that targets had been wrongly identified as Hezbollah facilities.

Voices expressing concern over the armed forces’ failures are getting louder. As one well-connected Israeli expert put it: ‘If we have such good information in Lebanon, how come we still don’t know the hideout of missiles and launchers?… If we don’t know the location of their weapons, why should we know which house is a Hezbollah house?’ Are the informants being forced to provide such information to annihilate Lebanese people or does Israel really have crippled intelligence?
