Israel ‘regrets’ UN deaths

`Israel said today it regretted the deaths of four UN military observers in southern Lebanon and would investigate the air strike that killed them.

“We do not target UN personnel and, since the beginning of this conflict, we have made a consistent effort to ensure the safety of all members of (the UN peacekeeping force). This tragic event will be thoroughly investigated,” Mr Regev said.’
