The plight of Marjayoun

To the inhabitants of villages south of the Litani Rivier. Because of Hezbollah terrorist operations against the State of Israel are launched from inside your villages and homes, Israel will defend itself forcefully against theses operations and will enter your villages. For your safety we ask you to leave your villages as quickly as possible and go north of the Litani River. Signed, the State of Israel.
But Israel bombed the bridges over the Litani on Day One. This is forcing refugees east and through the hills towards the town of Marjayoun, which is flooded with villagers from the south. Its ramparts are being pounded by Israeli artillery as flows of refugees wending their way toward Marjiyoun are being targeted as they attempt to flee.
