Lebanese Children Orphaned by Isreali Attack in 2006

I don't have complete records, but the following report entry by USAID gives a hint:

Mercy Corps provided food kits to 3,500 families in Baalbek District, as well as textbooks and clothing to 598 orphaned children. [1] This doesn't account for Southern Lebanon where the most sever damage was inflicted by the US/Israli assault.

It's a sad sign of the times, or a reflection of superficial corporate media, that when searching the web for "orphaned Lebanese" the first eight entries are about orphaned pets.
