After 38 hours in Lebanon, the massacre of Sabra and Xilla against Palestinian refugees

years ago

18 September 1982,

Sabra and the Xatilla massacre ended 38 hours later in Lebanon. These are the words of the Red Cross observers: “Babies with the wall placed, elderly, with the bodies overlaid; they also killed horses, dogs and cats; breasts and penises cut off, opened the womb to many pregnant women.” Then he was a military and then it was known that Ariel Sharon, the prime minister, had “personal responsibility.”

Two and a half months later, the US Congress awarded Israel additional military aid of $250 million, and in 1991 the Lebanese Parliament seized criminal responsibility from the perpetrators of this massacre.
