Cars packed with terrified civilians have been fleeing southern Lebanon. White flags flown from car windows show that refugees want no active part in the conflict that is destroying their communities. They just want out. They are leaving behind their homes in the south of Lebanon, trying to reach safer areas in the north or in Syria. It has been twelve days since Israel started its bombardment, in an effort to recover two soldiers captured by Hizbollah. Twelve days which have seen hundreds of civilians die and 500,000 more left without homes.
