Israelis slaughter Lebanese security forces and civilians who had earlier been under UN escort

The SMH reports that

the UN Security Council today unanimously called for an immediate end to a month of bloody fighting between Israel and Hezbollah even as the violence claimed more lives.

HOWEVER

Shortly before the long-awaited resolution was passed, at least seven people were killed when Israeli drones attacked a convoy of Lebanese security forces and civilians who had earlier been under UN escort.

The incident saw three Lebanese army vehicles hit and set ablaze, police said. The victims were mostly civilians. The convoy contained hundreds of Lebanese soldiers and civilians fleeing the Israeli bombardments.

More than four weeks of conflict in the region have left more than 1100 dead, mainly in Lebanon.
