At present there are approximately 10,000 Americans in Beirut as Israel bombs the city. Two aircraft, A310 Airbuses, were ready to leave for Paris and London as the airport was hit by Israeli missiles. An unknown number of foreign nationals are stranded in the city, as Israel has blockaded the airport and sea routes. This is the height of the summer tourist season in Beirut.

Among the dead as of this moment are at least two Kuwaitis and one Asian woman of unidentified nationality. At least ten of the more than 50 dead civilians are reportedly children.
