Meir Shalev on the war in Lebanon

Among Israeli authors there is growing criticism of the conduct of Israel's army in Lebanon. In an open letter, Amos Oz, David Grossman and AB Yehoshua have called for an end to its current operations. Meir Shalev comments in an interview with Christoph Schult: "Israel had good reason to go to war, but the way it is conducting the war is not justified. I'm not just referring to the tragedy in Qana, but to what happened in the first days of the conflict: the way it attacked Beirut and killed civilians in Lebanon. From the first day on we should have confined ourselves to attacking Hizbullah's strongholds along the Israeli-Lebanese border."
