Stop the Violence
Join the world in calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah.
Lebanon “has been torn to shreds", said Lebanese Prime Minster Fouad Siniora. “I call upon you all to respond immediately... and provide urgent international humanitarian assistance to our war-stricken country. Can the international community stand by while such callous retribution by the state of Israel is inflicted on us?"
300 people had been killed and 500,000 others displaced in a week of Israeli attacks. Many thousands continue to flee Lebanon.
A humanitarian crisis is in the making.
The country has been under a total blockade for the last week preventing medications and necessary supplies to enter the country. Wounded people are not able to have the necessary treatment, and children and adults are suffering from a shortage of food and water.
Relief agencies say there is a growing need for water, sanitation and medical facilities for those displaced within Lebanon
French President Jacques Chirac called for humanitarian corridors in Lebanon to protect civilians from Israeli air raids as they flee the fighting.
I only join the Lebanese Prime Minister and the French President in their plea. Help stop the Violence.
Love and Peace
