Israel and Lebanon

Israel continues to occupy and terrorise the south of Lebanon: in Tiri, 4 people are killed while 79 have their ears and hands cut off. 20 people are killed after a raid at Al-Naher Al-Bared, a Palestinian refugee camp.

The USA vetoes two United Nations resolutions. One condemning Israeli actions against civilians in Lebanon and the other calling on Israel to respect Muslim holy places.

Israeli warplanes force an executive jet from Libya to land in Israel, in an effort to capture Abu Nidal, a Palestinian leader. He is not on board and, after interrogation, the passengers are allowed to leave.

The USA vetoes a United Nations resolution condemning Israel for sky-jacking.
