LEBANON. Bint Jbeil. July 31, 2006. During a 48 hours ceasefire, Lebanese civilians, mostly the elderly, are rescued by the Lebanese Red Cross. They are all starved, dehydrated and in shock by days of heavy Israeli bombing. The Lebanese Red Cross also evacuates the bodies of civilians killed in Israeli airstrikes (last picture). The minibus hit by a rocket was transporting civilians who were trying to flee the bombing of the town.
