Kofi Annan's misdirected ire

Sure, this is a tragedy, but...

As recent UNIFIL press releases show, in the last two weeks Hizballah has been firing at Israel from the vicinity of its bases, drawing Israeli fire to the international observers. This is a deliberate ploy to endanger UNIFIL personnel. Israel has fired at Hizballah targets being careful to avoid endangering UN lives. That one shell eventually went astray and killed four UNIFIL soldiers is an accident for which Israel has apologised and which will be the subject of an official inquiry.
Quickdraw Kofi has the answer.
A day earlier, Mr. Annan said he was “shocked and deeply distressed by the apparently deliberate targeting by Israeli Defence Forces."
No sense investigating what happened... Kofi just knows.
