Israeli air raids

Israeli air raids destroy the Palestine refugee camp of Nabatiyeh in Lebanon, along with three other camps. In Nabatiyeh alone, 80 per cent of UNRWA concrete-block shelters, home to more than 3,000 Palestine refugees, are hit. The Agency immediately begins providing blankets and rations for the refugees, and also initiates an emergency feeding programme and a mobile medical unit.
