Bleeding Lebanon!!!

These pictures were taken on Wed. 19th of July - a week after the war on Lebanon began. The images depict one of Downtown Beirut's busiest streets at around 5pm and as you can see not one single car is adventuring on it. Its not because the Israelis are bombarding the area, its because thousands of Lebanese and foreigners have fled the country in fear of being tagged as "collateral damage". The latest official count puts the exodus to 100,000 people who left the country via Syria and thousands more through the evacuation of foreign nationals. The Lebanon we knew is quickly slipping through our hands...
