Israel/Lebanon: Civilian killings/Fear for safety

, Index number: MDE 15/044/1999

At least 10 people, including civilians, have been killed, and dozens wounded, across Lebanon and northern Israel over the last 24 hours as hostilities have escalated between Israel and armed groups opposed to the Israeli occupation of a "security zone" in south Lebanon. Eight of those killed in Israeli air raids were Lebanese, including civil defence workers and civilians. Two Israeli civilians died in Hizbullah shelling of the town of Qiryat Shemona in northen Israel. Amnesty International is concerned the this escalation may continue and result in more civilian casualties.
