Time_of_Sighting: afternoon
I moved to Lebanon in 1995. It was in 1996 that there was
a series of Israeli attacks on Lebanon and the situation
was getting more and more serious. I was home in Beirut
with my family. Israel only attacked Southern Lebanon and
nowhere near where I was living in Beirut. As a journalist,
I had taken to keeping note of all that was happening
everyday of the attacks. As I was writing the details of
the day's attacks in my journal, I saw a ball of fire, red
and orange in colour fly past my balcony (i live on the
fifth floor). Just as I was beginning to think I had dreamed
it up, I saw my family drop to the floor in the living room,
shouting in a state of panic, and start crawling towards the
safety of the bedrooms' corridor. I joined them immediately
and we were scared it was an Israeli missile. Strangely
enough, we heard no explosions or any panic in the streets
below. Later, we were even more surprised to see that nothing
of the "fireball" we saw was reported on the news. I never
thought about the incident, because I was more occupied later
on with helping the survivors of the Qana massacre. Still,
many of the people I have spoken to did remember such a thing
flying over Beirut and it seems they all put it down to being
an Israeli missile. The question remains, if it was a missile,
where did it explode and what did it damage? The answer is
nowhere and nothing...
