In a significant move, the Council for South Lebanon has sanctioned approximately $10 million in compensations for residents of South Lebanon adversely affected by the Israeli bombardments since October 8.
This approval materialized in Wednesday’s caretaker Cabinet session, following a two-day dialogue between caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati and Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah, as reported by al-Akhbar newspaper.
The compensation plan outlines substantial payments: owners of destroyed homes will receive $40,000 each, distributed in three installments, while owners of partially damaged homes are entitled to $11,000 each.
Moreover, individuals injured and families of the deceased will receive amounts varying from $10,000 to $20,000. Additionally, the scheme includes compensations for damaged vehicles, livestock, and crops, confirmed by Hashem Haidar, head of the Council for South Lebanon.
