Beirut this morning
This must have been a major Hezbollah stronghold... actually, it is a civilian populated suberb in Beirut, or what's left of it.
This is actually where the stronghold is... oh wait. More suburbs...
For a glimpse into what living here right now is like, check out Beezer's blog, Lebanonlive. Frankly, I could not image being woken by blasts and aftershocks... or not being able to even go outside for fear of getting killed. I pray that this will end soon, so that civilians on both sides will no longer be afraid to look outdoors.
So far, at least 227 Lebanese civilians have been killed, including 8 Canadians from the Israeli air strikes, and 25 Israeli civilians have died from Hezbollah rockets.
This is what Harper calls a "measured response" for Israeli self-defence.
