    On this day the Zionist terrorists accompanied by Phalangist militias of Lebanon invaded two Palestinian refugees’ camps –Sabra and Shatila- located in the southwest of Beirut between the 16th and the 18th of September 1982. Ariel Sharon, Israel’s minister for military affairs in 1982, had overall responsibility for the Israeli forces, who controlled the area of the Sabra and Shatila camps and was in charge of this barbaric slaughter. In this heinous massacre, more than 3000 innocent civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shia Muslims, were killed. the United Nations General Assembly condemned what happened, called it ‘an act of genocide’ and issued a resolution which was passed by 98 affirmative votes. It’s interesting to note that the countries which make claims about advocating democracy and human rights, abstained from voting on this resolution! The following are the statements of Imam Khamenei on this massacre.
