Beirut from Above

Here are some satellite images of Beirut before and after Israeli bombing.

Before:



After:


First image from Google Earth, second from DigitalGlobe. Here's Google Earth link with the latter image overlaid. Note the blank spots in the lower middle of the second shot. These photos and varients seen to be pretty widely available at the moment, and I really can't think of anything to addthey kind of speak for themselves. I believe someone compared them to Dresden after the wasa bit over the top, my view, but it's pretty bad.

At the time of writing, the IDF had leafletted south Beirut with a warning to evacuate, then resumed bombing. Hence, the image may longer be accurate.

Images compiled from here.
