The Lebanese Wars

The 1982 Lebanon War (Levanon Harishona, "the first Lebanon war", Al-ijtiyaḥ, "the invasion"), called Operation Peace for Galilee by Israel, and later known in Israel as the Lebanon War and First Lebanon War, began on June 6th, 1982, when the Israel Defense Forces invaded southern Lebanon. The Government of Israel launched the military operation after the Abu Nidal Organization's assassination attempt against Israel's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Shlomo Argov.

The 2006 Lebanon War, also called the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War and known in Lebanon as the July War (Arabic: Ḥarb Tammuz) and in Israel as the Second Lebanon War (Hebrew: Milhemet Levanon HaShniya), was a 34-day military conflict in Lebanon, Northern Israel and the Golan Heights. The principal parties were Hezbollah paramilitary forces and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The conflict started on July 12th, 2006, and continued until a United Nations-brokered ceasefire went into effect in the morning on August 14th, 2006, though it formally ended on September 8th, 2006, when Israel lifted its naval blockade of Lebanon. Due to unprecedented Iranian military support to Hezbollah before and during the war, some consider it the first round of the Iran-Israel proxy conflict, rather than a continuation of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
