Escalation of cross-border conflicts exacerbating hardship for refugees, local communities in crisis-ridden Lebanon

More than six months of hostilities have caused deep suffering on refugees and local communities in South Lebanon, affecting all aspects of life across the border area amid worsening multiple crises facing Lebanon, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) warned recently.

According to reliefweb, attacks have intensified over the last 48 hours, with several civilians reportedly killed and injured in South Lebanon.

The exchange of explosives across the southern border has affected civilians on both sides, displaced more than 90,000 civilians living in South Lebanese villages, and claimed more than 70 lives.

Israeli attacks on southern Lebanese villages have caused widespread damage to hundreds of acres of agricultural lands, disrupting farmers’ only source of income.
