“Hezbollah scholar” Judith Palmer Harik writes in Hezbollah: The Changing Face of Terrorism:
“Then, on 19 September, Ariel Sharon’s troops who were presumed to be protecting the people in the camps from just such an eventuality, apparently did not see Bashir’s Lebanese allies cleanse the camps of ‘2,000 terrorists’ Defense Minister Sharon insisted had remained on the sites. As a result of that action, hundreds of Lebanese and Palestinian civilians were subjected to three days of torture, rape and killing while many others were arrested and trucked away never to appear again. In all, an estimated 2,000 civilians were either killed or made to disappear in that operation.
A four-nation international force, including 1,400 US marines, was dispatched to Beirut immediately after the massacres to take charge of the further deteriorating situation and to organize the evacuation of Palestinian fighters to Tunisia, whose government agreed to accept them.” (p. 35-36)
Anything wrong with that paragraph? I call upon the resident Lebanon experts to provide an answer.
