ei: Israel attacks Lebanon (12 July 2006): "Israel attacks Lebanon (12 July 2006)
Following the capture of two Israeli soldiers by Hizballah on July 12th, Israel brings its campaign of collective punishment and excessive use of force to Lebanon, with 'Operation Just Reward'. Dawn air strikes on south Lebanon on 13 July 2006 claimed the lives of at least 44 civilians, including over 15 children, and wounded over 100. Israel bombed bridges linking the north and south of the country and all three runways of Beirut's commercial airport. The Israeli army's Chief of Staff, Dan Halutz, promised that 'nothing is safe in [Lebanon], as simple as that.'"
