Israel was at fault in the deaths of four observers from the U.N. Truce Supervision Organization, including Canadian Major Paeta Hess-von Kruedener. That was the finding made public February 1 by a Canadian Forces Board of Inquiry. The incident occurred during the Israeli-Hizbullah conflict. The observers were killed by a 500 kilogram bomb dropped by an Israeli airplane.
The Board identified the Israel Defense Forces as the responsible party but was unable to assign blame more specifically because of lack of cooperation from the U.N. and Israel. Israeli military supplied “only an oral summary of its findings that was of limited use.”
The U.N. observers had radioed Israeli forces about their location, but they were bombed anyway.
