Consequence of Israel pre-emptive war on Lebanon in June 2006

Israel launched a pre-emptive war on Lebanon in 2006 that lasted 33 days. Monstrous infrastructure devastation ensued that cost Lebanon $15 bn.

2,000 Lebanese died and four fold were injured and handicapped. Israel lost thousands of its soldiers, on land and on sea, and a third of Israel population were incarcerated in shelters for the duration.

Supposedly, Israel was attacking Hezbollah, but every region in Lebanon was hit with fighter jets bombs and missiles. In the last day of the ceasefire, Israel dropped million of cluster bombs delivered to it from Scottish manufacturers and weapon reserved by order of Blair PM. 13 years later, many civilians are killed or handicapped from these cluster bombs.

1,5 million Lebanese civilians took refuge inside Lebanon or in Syria and 200,000 left to overseas  countries to start a new life.

over 30,500  houses were demolished and 350 towns terribly devastated.

16 main hospital knocked down and 15% of schools targeted.

120,000 public servants were out of work in 33 days.

91 main bridges bombed and 650 km of road damaged

92,000 trees lost.

Once the cease fire was declared on July 15, almost all southern citizens returned immediately, using makeshift bridges to reach their towns and homes.

The Government had warn them Not to return on the excuse of fear of “Not exploded bombs”, but they did return and won the war: Israel wished the south be vacated by its inhabitants and this project failed miserably.

A few Gulf States tried to be forgiven by their support of Israel war and tried a reconstruction of Lebanese towns and bridges.

Since 2006, Israel population and army declined to go to war on Hezbollah: this horror fiasco is still in their psychic, as well of the experience of living in shelter.

I did write my diary of this war and how the Lebanese behaved.

Reblogged this on canisgallicus and commented:
War … so short but the amount of damage done especially the effects of cluster bombs. Ignorance has culpability. Nothing really changes with the Military Industrial Complex but this quote shows how so many countries are implicated in each of the many wars still going on. “Israel dropped million of cluster bombs delivered to it from Scottish manufacturers and weapon reserved by order of Blair PM. 13 years later, many civilians are killed or handicapped from these cluster bombs.”
