MONTREAL: To mark the 1 year anniversary of the Israeli attack on Lebanon hundreds of people gathered in Montreal for an evening of testimonials, poetry and presentations on the impacts of the 2006 Israeli attack on Lebanon. One year ago, Israel launched a military assault on Lebanon, commencing a 34 day war that left more than 1300 Lebanese civilians dead, large parts of the national infrastructure destroyed and southern Lebanon littered with over one million unexploded cluster bomblets.

This Montreal community commemoration was organized by Al-Hidaya Association, Association des jeunes libanais musulmans (AJLM) and Tadamon! Montreal…
