Surviving Lebanon

Surviving Lebanon

The rapid onslaught of war sparked by Hezbollah's capture of two Israeli soldiers in a cross border raid devastated Southern Lebanon, the southern suburbs of Beirut and a vast amount of civilian infrastructure.Thousands of Lebanese were displaced having fled under a barrage of pamphlets from Israeli warplanes advising them to leave their homes.

Many Lebanese civilians did not survive the journey. An estimated 1,300 Lebanese died, while Israel lost 159 people, 118 of them soldiers and the rest killed by Hezbollah's rockets.This is a record of the immediate impact of the war on Lebanese children and their families, the devastation of homes and entire villages, recovery efforts, and those civiliansreturning home to absolute carnage.
