Avivim, where Hezbollah targeted an Israeli military vehicle on Sunday, is originally a Lebanese village.

 

According to history references, Avivim is originally the village of Salha, one the seven villages waived by the French Mandate in favor of the British Mandate, turning one of the villages Palestinian, in accordance with a 1923 agreement, a few years after the Sykes-Picot Accord that divided the region between the two parties.

 

Salha saw the same fate as the Teir Bikha, Ibl Qamah, Hounine, Malkieh, Nabi Yusha and Kadas.

 

In 1948, during the Nakba, Israeli gangs invaded the small village and committed one of the most hideous massacres, leaving more than 100 martyrs from the town’s residents. The invaders continued their crimes, forcing the remaining residents to flee to Lebanon, who found refuge in several regions.
