  • Description

    Hundreds of villages from Chebaa in the Southern Lebanon demonstrated in the centre of the capital, Beirut, yesterday (August 25). They were demanding protection after an Israel force attacked the village the previous night.

    An Israeli raid on a village across the Lebanese border led to demonstrations in Beirut yesterday. According to a military spokesman in Beirut, an Israeli force attacked the village of Chebaa, less than a mile ( One km ) from the border and blew up six houses. The Israelis were also said to have shelled the village, destroying four more houses. There were no fatalities.

    Yesterday people from the village travelled by bus to the Lebanese capital to protest at the raid and demand Government protection, housing and aid. Some of those had lost their homes brought their belongings with them.

    Police condoned off the areas where the demonstration took place. Younger villagers expressed their emotion by setting fire to car tyres.

    (Israel has struck at targets in Southern Lebanon on various occasions, saying she was retaliating for Palestinian Commando attacks on Israel from inside the Lebanon).
