in the middle of nowhere! #Lebanon

Yesterday marked the 12th anniversary of the beginning of the 34 days Israeli offensive on Lebanon! 12 years later people are still bearing the consequences. Two years ago I met this brave young man! Hassan Bzeih, 13, shows the scar on his body in his room in Zebqine, south of #Lebanon. On March 27, 2015, Hassan and his twin brother Nabih, were severely injured when a teenager found a cluster bomblet on the floor, picked it up, played with it and then dropped it thinking it was already exploded. Their plan for a picnic day in the blossoming nature, turned suddenly into a bloody one. When the medics rushed to the scene, Nabih, who saw his twin brother lying on the floor, severely injured and not moving, asked them to save Hassan first. He did the same when they came back to carry him for the second time and asked them to take his cousin away. On Friday, Hassan listened to his father telling the story, most probably over a hundred time, without saying a word! At the hospital, Hassan was declared dead, with shrepnels in his head, guts, etc. his father said. "They covered my face" Hassan's first sentence was. A medic felt there is still pulse and life running through the little body and decided not to give up on that beautiful boy. He tried hard to reanimate Hassan! In one year and 3 months Hassan came a long way from a near death experience to having his left side all paralysed, not speaking, not being able to eat, losing parts of his guts. He is 90% fine now and still going through rehab. On July 12, 2006, Hezbollah's militants captured two Israeli soldiers on the border, whoch sparked a 34-days Israeli aggression on Lebanon_ during which most of Lebanon's south and #Beirut's suburbs were heavily bombed and flatenned, over 1100 people were killed, 4000 people injured and a million displaced. During the last 72 hours of the offensive, Israeli forces dropped over a million of #cluster_bombs on Lebanon's south. 10 years later, people are still falling victims of those small bomblets.

On #WorldRefugeeDay, lets remember that anyone could suddenly become a #refugee. Many of us are already! Syrian refugee Natija, 10, centre, watches as her mother and sister Hekmat, 12, hollow out zucchinis in their kitchen in Tripoli, north of #Lebanon. The family fled #Syria after the father was severely injured during a bombing of their hometown. He lost one arm. (Oct. 30, 2017)

She was 5. They had left her and her two brothers at their uncle’s home and went to collect few belongings from theirs. She was separated from her brothers who stayed with their aunt in Syria and she moved with her uncle who found refuge in Amman with his family.
