Israel Cuts Off Last Major Road Between Lebanon And Syria:

Israel intensified their bombing raids on Beirut and northern Lebanon last night, cutting the last four highway bridges into Syria from Lebanon. They said the highway bridge bombings were to prevent arms from being transported from Syria.

Israel said nothing about cutting off the last major escape route for Lebanese civilian fleeing to safety. In the photos above, you can see that apparently only civilian vehicles were on the highways at the time.

International Aid workers say the highway bombings will prevent them from getting humanitarian aid into Lebanon. Meanwhile, around 28 farm workers unloading vegetables were killed by Israeli warplanes. Israel said the vegetables were bombs.
