The Israeli government is sending 17,000 people on 'holiday' for some 'recuperation'! Isn't that nice of them. Or it could be a nice way of dressing up mass evacuations from a situation that needn't have been this bad.

The government is offering some 17,000 residents of border towns to leave for several days, Cabinet Secretary Yisrael Maimon said Tuesday.

In making the announcement, Maimon avoided the word “evacuation,” saying instead that the residents were offered to leave the war zone for several days of recuperation. The government will pay for the stay of those leaving the border area.
That whole mission to smother Hizbollah's rocket attacks, which have increased, is going damn well, eh?
