Israel attacks 33 farmers in Al Qaa, Eastern Lebanon


More killing of civilians in Israeli attacks..

Excerpts from a Guardian article:

Israeli aircraft struck deep into Lebanon yesterday, killing at least 33 Syrian Kurdish farm workers and destroying four bridges on a key aid route leading north from Beirut.

The attack on the farm workers, who were loading peaches and plums on to trucks at Qaa in the north of the Beka'a valley, was one of the single deadliest strikes of the war.

Most of the farmers were Syrian nationals of Kurdish ethnicity. Other than the 33 killed, another 30 were injured and transported to hospitals in Syria.
