asaf :: this is a colored sketch for an animation project about the war in lebanon.
for those less familiar with the subject - in 1982 the israeli army invaded lebanon in order to fight terrorist cells, or at least this is what the minister of defense at the time, ariel sharon, had promised the government. what meant to be a 48 hours operation became a nightmare that lasted months.
the war became a suppressed trauma in the collective memory of israel. ariel sharon, until recently a popular prime-minister, is now in coma.
here is a view of a cafe in beirut were some of the fighting took place.
more to come on this one.
