Go back 6 years in time. The 24th day of the "Israeli" war on Lebanon had now ended. At 1:00 a.m., two squads of "Israeli" infantrymen approached the town so as to seize the strategic locations.
But explosive bombs were implanted all along the town entrances, and the fighters yearned so much for martyrdom that they were indeed fearless. As soon as the moonlight of the 13th night of the Hijri month of Rajab exposed the "Israeli" soldiers' shadows, the fighters opened their fire.
The battle was so short, and both brigades retreated from the place while surveillance planes with missiles covered their withdrawal towards al-Jamousse Site. The dark olive orchards masked the shadows of the retreating soldiers, and warplanes began to revenge for the infantrymen targeted. Thus, an "Israeli" force got positioned in the amusement park in the north of the town.
During four other days, slight skirmishes took place, and the "Israeli" infantrymen acted cowardly. Eventually, they dragged their casualties to Shmeiss Hill, where they spread and began to wait for reinforcements to get to the place. But the fighters' shells did first, and a B-7 grenade hit an infantryman. The infantrymen realized they were exposed and their withdrawal line was going to be hard. One of them ran on the asphalt so slowly since he was carrying a heavy backpack, so a fighter took his time aiming at the infantryman, eventually gunning him down. As another infantryman rushed to drag him aside, he was gunned down, too. A third hid behind a car at the roadside, but a shell hit him, thrusting him towards the other two!
In the meantime, the fighters bombarded two vehicles at the amusement park, setting them afire. Out dashed their crewmen like bees escaping from a hive, and the only shelter they could find was a small room at a stone factory. A fighter's binoculars now chased more than 10 infantrymen, who hid in the barely three-meter-wide room. The fighter's rocket then demolished the room.
Being exposed wherever they went, the perplexed infantrymen dashed to a little crypt and started launching many gas grenades in order to cover their withdrawal. Then they walked more than 4 kilometers, carrying the wounded ones on stretchers until reinforcement vehicles arrived.
The enemy did know Tiri was a dangerous swamp, but it insisted on sinking into it. On the 12th of August, several vehicles and a bulldozer passed by al-Khazzan Hill and approached Tiri, making a new way to reach Haddatha Crossing Point. But they changed nothing as the explosive bombs and the anti-shield artillery were ready. The bulldozer was now near the UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon) Headquarters, and the vehicles were at Tiri's entrance. Behind them stood a fighter who swiftly launched two rockets, deactivating a vehicle, in addition to the bulldozer, the driver of which burned at once. Thence, two Merkava tanks shelled the place to evacuate the deceased driver before withdrawing; whereas the fighters opened their barrage in counteraction. The bulldozer was dragged to Tiri Crossing Point; it was ruined and flipped aside.
