Jan 7: Lebanese children demonstrate for Gaza Children

January 7 2009

BEIRUT

Thousands of Lebanese children gathered Tuesday in front of the UN building in downtown Beirut to denounce the Israeli aggressions against the children of Gaza, Lebanese New TV reported.

Aged less than 13 years, the children gathered in front of the headquarters of the United Nations Economic and social commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) holding pictures of children killed during the Israeli attacks on Gaza which started on Dec. 27.

The children delivered a letter addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urging him to find a solution to the bloodshed and the killing of children in Gaza.

Demonstrations have been carried out in most Lebanese areas on daily bases, two demonstrations were violent in front of the American embassy in Awkar East of Beirut, and in front of the Egyptian embassy in West Beirut.

Moreover, sit-in demonstrators in front of ESCWA building have been staged since the Israeli operation on Gaza started.

Israel launched airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Dec. 27 and ground operation on Jan. 3 in retaliation of Hamas militants’ rocket attacks into Israel. At least 590 Palestinians have been killed and in the attack, some 200 children and 60 women were among the death toll.
