Breakdown of Death Toll in Lebanon and Israel

There is someone in our department who is in Beirut right now. I really hope she doesn't end up on this list.



At least 227 people have been killed and more than 450 wounded, according to figures reported by the Lebanese national police and the military. Among the dead are 20 Lebanese army soldiers and two Hezbollah guerrillas.

Among the civilian deaths are 8 Canadians, 2 Kuwaiti nationals, 1 Iraqi, 1 Sri Lankan, 1 Jordanian, police have reported.

Latest deaths:

11 Lebanese army soldiers in a strike on their base in Kfar Chima, south of Beirut.

Five civilians killed in a collapsed house during strike on Aitaroun in south Lebanon.

One Jordan killed when missiles hit trucks near Zahleh in the mountains above the eastern Bekaa Valley.


25 Israelis have been killed, among them 8 soldiers, according to authorities there. Nine soldiers have been wounded, and 326 civilians.

Latest deaths:

Hezbollah rocket fire killed an Israeli in northern town of Nahariya.

It looks like it will never end.


Syria and Iran say they're open to cease-fire and prisoner swap

...and Israel refuses to swap. There you have it.

Which side wants peace and which side wants war?
