On the 12th July 2006 two Israeli soldiers were captured by Hezbollah fighters in the area of Aitaa al-Chaab.
Israel countered this with what it described as a 'proportionate response'. This response included the destruction by airstrikes and shelling of the airport, roads, bridges, factories and other infrastructure throughout the country but particularly south of the Litani River.
More than one million people fled their homes; some moved to temporary refugee camps whilst those that could left the country.
