Amnesty International published findings that point to an Israeli policy of deliberate destruction of Lebanese civilian infrastructure, which included war crimes, during the recent conflict.

Let us imagine that we are having tea on a sunny day with our neighbours.

Today, July 30th, another massacre was committed in Lebanon: More than sixty civilians, among them 37 children, were killed by Israeli bombs while they were sleeping in shelters in the village of Qana. They died not very far away from the mass grave holding the bodies of 106 civilians burned by a previous Israeli attack in April 1996 inside a shelter provided by a UN battalion.

A number of Lebanese, Arab and international organizations held a meeting on July 15, 2006 to discuss the current situation in Lebanon.

Press release issued by Human Rights Watch on July 30, 2006. It calls on the UN to establish an international commission of inquiry and states that Israel’s consistent failure to distinguish combatants and civilians is a war crime. Please note that we will be releasing an extensive report documenting civilian casualties in Lebanon from IDF attacks over the first two week's of the conflict this Tuesday or Wednesday.
