font size    

Span has agreed to provide assistance to the south Lebanese who incurred damage during last summer's war with Israel, The Daily Star reported on Wednesday.

The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation signed an agreement with the Sidon municipality in south Lebanon on Tuesday, dedicating 400,000 euros (some 545,000 U.S. dollars) in this regard.

Sidon Mayor Abdel-Rahman Bizri was quoted as saying that the aid would be dedicated to provide Southerners, especially children and the elderly, with food, clothes and medications for chronic diseases, and books and stationary for public schools students.

On July 12 last year, Hezbollah guerrilla group's capture of two Israeli soldiers triggered a 34-day war between the two sides, during which Israeli army dropped a mass of bombs into Lebanon, especially in the south and capital Beirut's southern suburb.

Lebanese Council of Development and Reconstruction estimated the direct material losses of the war at more than 3.6 billion dollars, while the indirect losses are expected to be much more.
