A C-130 military plane flew from Elefsina, west of Athens, to Larnaca, Cyprus, yesterday transporting humanitarian aid for Lebanon as part of a European Union relief effort. The food, blankets, anti-biotics and tents were expected to be dropped off in the Cypriot city where they would then be transported by military ship to Beirut. It is the fifth shipment of humanitarian aid that Greece is sending to Lebanon since the conflict with Israel began.

"The operation has not yet been completed. Many days of fighting still await us. Missiles and rockets will still fall. Hours of fear and uncertainty and, yes, also pain, tears and blood await us." -- Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
