Tugann na Ziónaigh faoin Liobáin Arís

27 July 2006

Ó tháinig deireadh leis an gcogadh cathartha sa Liobáin sa bhliain 1990, nuair a rinne Airm na Siria an tír a ghabháil, ba dócha go raibh deireadh tagtha leis an tréimhse dhorcha úd. Ar feadh sé bliana déag, mhair an tsíocháin go dtí go ndearna na hIosraelaigh ionsaí ar an tír trí sheachtain ó shin. Ba iad na hIosraelaigh ba chúis is mó don chogadh cathartha sna 1980í nuair rinne siad ionsaí ar an tír i 1982. Faoi cheannas Ariel Sharon, bhí na hIosraelaigh i bhfeighil agus freagrach as ucht an tslada uafásacha a tharla i gcampaí dídine Sabra agus Shatila, nuair a ligeadh do na míleataigh Críostaíocha scrios agus ár a dhéanamh ar neamhthrodairí.
