Israel and Lebanon

Israel continues to occupy the south of Lebanon terrorising the civilian population: 7 are killed in Al-Husseinieh, 15 in Maaraka, 22 in Zrariah, 5 in Jibaa, 10 in Yohmur. In Homeen Al-Tahta, 20 villagers are killed after being ordered into the school which is then blown up.

The USA vetoes two separate United Nations resolutions condemning Israeli actions in Lebanon and the use of excessive force in the occupied territories.

A car bomb explodes outside a Mosque in Beirut, timed for when people would be leaving, killing 80 people. The USA's CIA is later implicated in this attack, an assassination attempt on Sheikh Fadlallah, a Mulsim cleric.
