That savage crime was done without any try of the Murderer Sharon (the Leader of the Israeli army in Lebanon at that time) to stop the killing of the innocent civilians, Palestinian, Lebanese’s, Syrians, Egyptian, and many other nationalities. up to now there is no real figures, but everybody says that not less 2500 to 3000 people were killed… Every year Sabra & Shatila people carry their pain, tears, sadness and the pictures of their beloved and their memories and walk collectively with candles and flowers in their hand to the Martyrs cemetery, telling their beloved that they didn’t forget them, and they will continue the struggle to lead the Israel murderers to the justice and court.
