Lebanese-Israeli conflict in the 1990s
In response to anti-Israel military actions, particularly by Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian militants, Israel has made repeated military advances into southern Lebanon (the security zone) since 1991. The major military offensive launched by Israel at the end of July 1993 to disarm Hezbollah, as a result of which more than 300,000 people fled towards Beirut and which for the first time led to the joint stationing of Lebanese troops and UN blue helmet units (UNIFIL) north of the security zone, followed in May 1994 and 1995 as well as further military conflicts in August 1997, v. a. between Hezbollah / Amal and Israel. Repeated rocket attacks by Hezbollah on border areas in northern Israel led to Israeli military action against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon in April 1996 (“fruits of anger”) and to a sea blockade of the ports in southern Lebanon; For the first time since 1982, the Israeli Air Force again attacked targets in Beirut in 1996. The heavy fighting triggered another wave of refugees (around 500,000). On April 18, 1996, over 100 refugees were killed by Israeli grenades in Cana. On April 27, a ceasefire came into force, but it was repeatedly violated. As a result, there were repeated violent fights up to 2000. On May 24, 2000, Israel ended the occupation of southern Lebanon six weeks earlier than planned by withdrawing its troops from the security zone completely and almost in flight, in accordance with UN Resolution 425 of 1978. At the same time, the 6,000-strong SLA collaborating with Israel was disbanded. On May 25, 2000, Hezbollah units moved into the previously occupied 15 km wide border strip. At the end of July / beginning of August 2000, units of the UNIFIL, increased to 5,600 men, were stationed there; this was accompanied by the handover to the government of Lebanon. On September 4, 2000, the Lebanese government approved a UN determination of the course of the border. On September 9th, Lebanese soldiers entered the border area. However, there were occasional border crossings by Hezbollah, which is not controlled by the Lebanese government.
