Record displacement was reported on Saturday, with civilians were evacuating southern towns to Beirut, Mouth Lebanon and even to Syria.
The Israeli enemy committed a horrible massacre on that day, killing at least 20 civilians, most of them were children, who were fleeing southern town of Marwaheen. Occupation forces told the civilians by loudspeakers to leave the town. They were then refused asylum in a UN base and afterwards, their vehicle was attacked by an Israeli strike.
For its part, rocket fire did not stop, with occupied territories were pounded by Hezbollah missiles. Israeli city of Tiberias entered the equation for first time, raising concerns among Israeli officials who were surprised by Hezbollah’s rocketry power.
