  • Description

    There were angry reactions in Lebanon to the news that one hundred and six people had died after Israeli fighters had shot down a Libyan passenger plane over Sinai. Lebanese television interrupted its programme to give the tragic news.

    The Lebanese Premier Saeb called the incident a kind of air-piracy deplored by the civilized world. Dr. Amin Al-Hafez, Chairman of the Lebanese Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee said the shooting down of the plane was one of a series of acts of "Israeli aggression and air piracy" which also included Wednesday morning's raids against the Lebanon. All states he added, must be warned against Israel's intentions. He pointed out that Israel in the past complained of the activities of the Palestinians and claimed they harmed international civilian traffic. Dr. Amin El-Hafez asked how then could Israel justify attacking innocent civilians either in camps or aboard airliners?
    In the streets people avidly read the latest news of the situation.
