Tyre Calling For Humanitarian Assistance

This piece of news was sent to me by my fellow blogger Raja, who has no access to the blog and has left Beirut for a safer place east.

The coalition of municipalities of the Tyre region has urgently called out for humanitarian assistance. They currently host around 3000 refugees, and they only have enough food for one day.

They have no electricity, so the fridges in which dead bodies are kept until burial are no longer working.

This is merely one region in the south. Maybe if this is posted in the blog with a plea for all Lebanese in the diaspora to try to help through the way they know best, that would help.

"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."
