Incident: Convoy Attack (fatalities), Lebanon

Israeli aircraft attacked a civilian evacuation convoy outside of Marjeyoun, killing seven (including a Red Cross worker) and wounding 36. Some of the attacked vehicles had Red Cross markings and the UN stated the convoy had received permission to travel on a named route. The IDF denied permission was given and said vehicles in the convoy were suspected of carrying Hezbollah arms.
