Lebanon: The Gathering Storm (23/27)
UN peacekeepers on the Blue Line, the border demarcation between Lebanon and Israel, in south Lebanon. The flags of Hezbollah, Palestine and Lebanon fly in the background. Israel occupied southern Lebanon from 1978 until 2000, and the area remains highly sensitive. A cross border attack by Hezbollah in 2006 caused a 34-day long war between Israel and Hezbollah.
