2,000 TERRORISTS


Directed by | Peter Speetjens & Hanro Smitsman

Genre documentary  |  Length: 50mins  |  Year of production: 2004


In 1982, following Israel's invasion of Lebanon, the PLO was evacuated from Lebanon, while the international community undertook to protect Palestinians remaining in the country. However, Israeli defense minister Ariel Sharon declared that ‘2,000 terrorists' remained in Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. Monitored by the Israeli army, a Lebanese militia entered the camps to exterminate these remaining 'terrorists'. Two days later more than two thousand civilian inhabitants were killed: men, women and children, in what the United Nations officially declared to be genocide. The film centers on the search for justice of four survivors who are among a group that has initiated legal action against Sharon and others responsible for the killings.
