The incident at Zaoutar, north of the Litani River, did not deteriorate into a clash and no one was hurt, but indicates, according to DEBKAfile, the increasing pugnacity of Hizballah. Dozens of villagers confronted the Spanish unit of two Humvee vehicles which was inspecting the roads and taking pictures of the terrain and tried to snatch their cameras. The Spanish troops took up combat positions. The UNIFIL spokesman Liam McDowall said the Spanish troops were there to inspect routes that could be used by their vehicles. He said the situation was aggravated by a “breakdown of communications” because of the language barrier.
