Israel Has Bombed Lebanon Over 6,000 Times Since October | 4 July 2024 | The Israeli army has conducted 6,142 attacks on Lebanese soil, resulting in at least 543 deaths between October 7 last year and June 21 this year, according to an analysis by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED). Aita al-Shaab, a Shia-majority village near the Israeli border that saw 85 homes destroyed during the 2006 Israel–Hezbollah war, has been targeted in 300 of these attacks... Western media reports indicate that the near-daily airstrikes, artillery shelling and the use of incendiary chemical white phosphorus by the Israeli army have rendered much of the five-kilometer (3.1-mile) zone north of the border "uninhabitable," displacing over 95,000 people in southern Lebanon. Residents have faced significant destruction of infrastructure, including homes, schools and hospitals, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis.
