Israeli forces fired flares over Lebanese southern towns of Tyre, Lebanon.
Unidentified men fired rockets late on Saturday June 12 towards Israel from al-Qlayleh, south of Tyre in southern Lebanon. The Lebanese Army have arrested a suspect.
"Fifty Syrian refugee children gathered to be taught rehabilitation through the Arts in Salafand refugee camp in Tyre, Lebanon. During this period, they were taught to express themselves in the realms of theatre, painting and arts and crafts. None of the children have continued their studies since they fled their countries for their lives. The average family size consists of five children. Although mothers are present for the most part, most of the fathers are either still at war, missing in action or deceased. During the 14-day workshop (August 1 - 14, 2013), the children were very open to talking about their stories of less, despair and rehabilitation. They were also very keen on being photographed and kept on insisting that I develop the pictures for them on the spot. It was difficult to explain to them that this was an impossible feat with a digital camera. The children ranged from ages 1 to 11 and spend their days playing in unfinished buildings near their decrepit camps. Their houses mainly consist on loose sheets held up by clothing pins, bit and pieces collected from construction sites and recycled containers. The NGOs involved in the making of the workshop were Sawa for Syria, the Civil Engineering Club of the American University of Beirut and the Naked Wagon."
Tyre, Lebanon | April 22, 2012
A bomb exploded in a lift at Nocean Restaurant in the coastal town of Tyre, South Lebanon, shortly after Sunday midnight, April 22, luckily leaving no casualties.
Although reports quote security men as saying the number of injured people were five or seven, the restaurant owner said there were only damages but neither deaths nor injuries.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Sayed Ahmed, Nocean Restaurant owner:
"We were closing the restaurant and there were four workers upstairs in the restaurant. While they were going upstairs, the blast took place. There are no injuries, but there are a lot of material damages. There are no injured people at all."
The restaurant is located on the third floor of a commercial building in Tyre, whose restaurants and liquor stores have been subjected to a series of similar blasts as part of an alcohol prohibition campaign allegedly launched by conservative Shiites, the majority inhabitants of the South.
Many liquor stores have closed due to the prohibition campaign in the country's south although alcohol is widely available in Lebanon, the most liberal Arab country.
