BBC says "Lebanon PM revises air raid toll"

What they mean is " Lebanon PM revises air raid toll down from 40 to 1"

But perhaps that's too long a heading eh - though the earlier headlines had the 40 figure in them.

Of course the toll could have been 40 - its an inevitable result of dropping high explosives on buildings. Maybe the IDF had some idea of who was in the building, maybe not. But they will make mistakes and kill people. Hezbollah just fire unaimed rockets in the general direction of human beings. They will kill people too.

This is still tragic, but need to be reported straight.
