Israel carries out airstrikes anyway.

Israel carried out airstrikes Monday in southern Lebanon despite an agreement to stop raids for 48 hours to investigate its bombing on Qana that killed at least 54 civilians.
An unidentified Lebanese emergency official -- speaking live on Al-Arabiya TV -- said rescuers lacked the heavy equipment to remove people trapped under the collapsed building.

"We can't do anything for them under the rubble because we do not have the right equipment," the official said.

So that's the reason for the suspension. They wanted to investigate 'what went wrong' in a bombing raid that destroyed a building with dozens of civilians in it. What's there to investigate? You released the bomb, it dropped, it detonated, the building fell, people died. End of investigation.

Besides, the suspension didn't last the whole two days. They just couldn't stop themselves.
Red Cross worker Sami Yazbak, who was helping to pull bodies from the building, said many of the children who were sleeping inside were handicapped.
Yow, that's damning, eh? Well, but I guess those handicapped children shouldn't have been fraternizing with terrorists. So they must have deserved it. Thankfully someone has finally held them responsible.
