Sabra and Shatila Massacre: Over the next two days, Christian militias slaughter Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in West Beirut, Lebanon.

The Christians involved insist that they have killed up to 3,500 Palestinians in retaliation for the assassination of Bachir Gemayel, recently elected as Lebanese president and the leader of the Lebanese Kataeb Party.

Members of the Christian Phalangist militia believe that Palestinians were responsible; in reality the assassination of Bachir Gemayel was probably carried out by pro-Syrian agents.
