UNIFIL broadcast Israeli troop movements, providing Israeli intelligence to Hizbullah

What did you do in the war, UNIFIL? You broadcast Israeli troop movements. An excerpt from the article by Lori Lowenthal Marcus:

UNIFIL–the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, a nearly 2,000-man blue-helmet contingent that has been present on the Lebanon-Israel border since 1978–is officially neutral. Yet, throughout the recent war, it posted on its website for all to see precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction. New information was sometimes only 30 minutes old when it was posted, and never more than 24 hours old.
