Beirut Diary - July 14th

The situation in Lebanon on Friday 14 July is that all bridges in South Lebanon and on the southern outskirts of Beirut as well as the two main bridges leading to the Bekaa and Damascus have been destroyed. The Beirut airport was bombed again early last night. Several petrol storage tanks were hit and the three runways were on fire throughout the night. The Israeli navy steams up and down the Lebanese coast, and with the two small airports in north Lebanon and the Bekaa destroyed in yesterday's air raids, Lebanon has been sealed off from the rest of the world. Some fifty civilians, including a score of babies and children were killed in yesterday's air raids and a bigger number wounded. The morgues in South Lebanon overflowed with bodies, such that ice delivery trucks had to be used to store the bodies.

The major question is whether Israel will continue today its massive attacks on Lebanon. The two kidnapped Israeli soldiers are reported to be in good health. Hezbollah will not release them except against the release of Lebanese prisoners in Israeli jails.

More later…
