CJPME Factsheet 33, published February, 2008: Canadian Forces Major Paeta Hess-Von Krudener – stationed as a United Nations peacekeeper in Lebanon – was killed on July 25, 2006 when the Israeli Air Force dropped a bomb on his UN post. Since the time of the incident, the Israeli government has claimed its attack on the UN post was an accident. Canada issued the results of its inquiry into the incident on Feb. 1, 2008.

This position paper highlights the causes and repercussions of the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war (also called the 2006 Lebanon war), before listing CJPME’s recommendations to Canada: offer more meaningful assistance to Lebanon, call both parties on their violations of international law and help remove unexploded Israeli munitions in Lebanon.
