The Lebanese Tragedy

Crozier, Brian

National Review;8/6/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 15, p946
This article focuses on Israel's invasion of Lebanon. It was reported that ten thousand people died in the early bombardment of Beirut, Lebanon, and 600,000 persons were rendered homeless in the area of military action. According to the Israelis, the actual number of homeless people was around twenty thousand. Armed Palestinians moved into refugee camps in Lebanon about ten years ago. This provoked retaliatory raids by the Israelis. Lebanon, once a center of peace and harmony in the turbulent region, virtually ceased to exist as a state.
