Thousands flee their homes fearing a broader and stronger Israeli offensive in southern Lebanon. Some media sources report up to 20,000 Israeli troops have begun to pour into Lebanon.
“In Beirut, Lebanon’s High Relief Committee said it had counted 828 people killed and 3,200 wounded since July 12, when Israel launched its offensive after Hezbollah kidnapped two soldiers in a cross-border raid.” (AFP)
