11th, 12th, 13th, Ceasefire

Theodoracopulos, Taki
December 1975
National Review;12/19/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 49, p1477
The article describes the fighting between Christians and Moslems in Lebanon. The sporadic fighting in spring 1975 turned to carnage in the closing weeks of October when the Moslems moved from harassment of the Christian community to all-out war. A 13th ceasefire in seven weeks was called after the first bloody weekend in November. The Lebanese army intervened and rescued the foreigners. The factional and unfocused fighting left thousands of people dead, wounded or homeless.
