Sabra and Shatila: New Revelations | by Seth Anziska

The Kahan Commission produced the official Israeli government report into Israeli involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre of hundreds of Palestinian refugees conducted in September 1982 by Lebanese Phalange militiamen allied to Israel. That report had a secret appendix never before published—until now. It includes extensive minutes of meetings between Israeli and Lebanese officials, discussions between the Israeli Mossad, Israeli military intelligence, and Lebanese Maronite Christian leaders over the fate of Palestinians, testimonies from high-ranking Israeli officials, and Israeli cabinet minutes. Together, these new documents paint an incriminating picture of Israeli official eagerness to invite the Phalange militia into Beirut to help fulfill a broader objective of vanquishing Palestinian demands for nationhood and the right of return.
