Maps expose Israeli claims on Qana massacre

Issue No. 2067

An aerial photo released by the Israeli army to justify their attack on Qana shows a rocket launch site in a field outside the village (bottom).

The Israelis claim that the rockets were being fired from near the house where civilians were sheltering.

Yet the roads that can been seen in the Google map (top), marked (I), are 800 metres to the south of the house targetted by the missile, marked as (J).

Qana was the scene of a previous massacre during Operation Grapes of Wrath in 1996. Over 100 civilians were killed as they sought shelter in the UN base, marked as (G).

Other launch sites identified in the aerial evidence are in the fields to the south of the village.
