Al Arabiya TV Crew Attacked

The Dubai-based Al Arabiya Television crew, along with the Doha-based Al Jazeera Channel, were attacked few hours ago in Lebanon. The crews were bombed on their way from Marjaioon to Hasbaia. According to the Al Jazeera Office Chief in Beirut, Ghassan Bin Jeddo, the crews had to abandon equipment and transmission trucks and hide into the nearby fields. Later they managed to leave the area on foot before they were picked up by a Red Cross vehicle and were taken to Hasbaia. They are all safe and sound. Earlier in the day Israeli planes destroyed satellite dishes and transmission towers in the north of Lebanon, disrupting the LBC broadcast for a while and knocking out the Al Manar transmission.
