02 Aug Lebanon crisis
Following the July 12 bombing of Lebanon , significant portions of the country’s infrastructure, including airports, bridges and roads, have been destroyed, seriously disrupting the delivery of essential services and international aid.
433 Lebanese and 51 Israelis have been killed in the conflict as of July 26, and as many as 400,000 people are believed to have fled their homes. For those left behind food is running short, and medical supplies are meager. Increasing barriers to surface access in the country are causing a growing need for an air corridor for the safe and timely delivery of aid goods and personnel.
Air Serv International , providing humanitarian access to Iraq since 2003, is preparing for emergency aviation operations to fly humanitarian workers and supplies to and from Lebanon .
