Israel: Even rainwater a weapon

A small news item but significant none the less:

ANI reports that two Lebanese villages on the frontier with Israel, Kfarkila and Adayssé, were able to thwart Israeli attempts to open the gates of overfull Israeli rainwater reservoirs and flood their fields of crops and roads. Thursday at around 3 in the afternoon, Israeli workers protected by troops attempted to over the gates. The villagers gathered en masse around the Israelis until Lebanese troops and members of the Spanish UNIFIL contingent arrived to defuse the situation.
