George Hasrooni shows the unexploded Israeli artillery shell lying in the bathroom of his house in Ein Ebel, a Christian village located a few miles from the Israeli border

Christians in the southern Lebanese village of Ein Abel are trapped between combatants Israel and Hezbollah. Guerrillas have fired rockets from just outside the village, drawing Israeli return fire. Parts of Ein Abel are in ruins.

Hezbollah guerrillas fired more than 190 rockets into Israel on Wednesday, killing one person and wounding more than a dozen, medics said. Israeli commandos have struck deep into Lebanon, snatching five suspected Hezbollah guerrillas in a helicopter raid that spectacularly snubbed international pressure for an end to the three-week-old conflict. There are an estimated 10, 000 Israeli troops within the borders of Lebanon.

Israel launched its deepest ground strike into Lebanon on Wednesday, claiming it had killed 10 Hezbollah guerrillas and captured five in the northeastern city of Baalbek while nearby air strikes killed at least 15 civilians.

We Greeks continue to pray for the innocent being killed in Lebanon and in Israel and throughout the planet. We Greeks know war. We have fought many wars in our 8,000+ year history and we have been invaders and we have been invaded. Today we live in peace and we wish every nation can experience the blessing of peace, God willing.
