The Israeli Supreme Court refused to allow the attacks on terrorist leaders. Ironically, it was a communist member of the legislature who brought the suit to the Supreme Court, asking that it be illegal to kill "enemies of the state." Meanwhile, when Israel left southern Lebanon, it insisted there were no maps for land mines. But now it has turned over to the UN maps showing where, over 22 years, Israel had planted 405,000 land mines. Before that, the UN has estimated that there were only 130,000 mines and that it would take four years to clear them. Some Lebanese say that the new maps don't cover all the mined areas. Since Israel left the area in May, 2000, 20 Lebanese and Syrian troops have been wounded in demining operations paid for by the United Arab Emirates.
