Israel isolates Tyre with threat to bomb all traffic

"Israeli aircraft dropped leaflets over Tyre yesterday morning, warning people not to use vehicles south of the Litani river, heightening the city's sense of isolation.
All roads north and south of the port city have been cut by bombing in the last few days and Israeli authorities have refused permission for any ships to dock.

Local and international humanitarian organisations tried to get exemption from the travel ban by applying to the Israeli authorities for permission to go out on urgent missions. Yusuf Khairalla, Tyre's civil defence supervisor, said the city was isolated. "This is the first time this has happened," he said."

That's really helping the situation, there. People love you when you do stuff like stopping medical supplies getting into cities. And when you ensure people can't leave and then say you're going to bomb them because they're being used by terrorists as human shields, that one's even more guaranteed to ensure they have warm and fuzzy feelings about you.
