Curator's note: this poster is a commentary on the following event mentioned in the Wikipedia entry below:

"On 10 July 1981, violence erupted in South Lebanon and Northern Israel. Israel renewed its air strikes and after five days, the PLO began shelling northern Israel. On July 17, the Israel Air Force launched a massive attack on PLO buildings in downtown Beirut. Perhaps as many as three hundred died, and eight hundred were wounded, the great majority of them civilians. The Israeli army also heavily targeted PLO positions in south Lebanon without success in suppressing Palestinian rocket launchers and guns."
