Aid workers say Israel's 'safe zone for aid' is an illusion

Aid workers from Medicins Sans Frontiers say the 'aid corridor' Israel has promised not to bomb in Lebanon is an illusion.

Israel promised to allow aid workers to have access to people who are dying in the South, because Israel has rejected a ceasefire.

But now, MSF aid workers say bombs have landed too close to them for 2 days in a row for them to get access.

Even worse - they say Israel has just promised the aid corridor to make itself look good, without actually opening up a safe zone.

Israel's humanitarian policy: kill UN peacekeepers, scare aid workers.

Israel today refused the request for a 72 hour ceasefire. And they blew up the road to Damascus.

Did they do that purposefully, knowing all of those truckloads of aid are there, waiting to get to Lebanon?

I'll never understand man's inhumanity to man.

Yeh right …you are so humanitarian…what a laugh

To say Arab and humanitarian in one sentence is oxymoron
