Did you know about Lebanon?

A small, mountainous country in the Middle East, Lebanon was under the French until independence in 1943. The Lebanon Mountains, which run parallel to the western coast, cover most of the country, while on the eastern border is the Anti-Lebanon Range. Between the two lies the fertile Bekaa Valley. Lebanon isfamous for its cedar wood.

Facts about Lebanon

Administrative divisions: 8 governorates (mohafazat , singular - mohafazah); Aakar , Baalbek-Hermel , Beqaa , Beyrouth , Liban-Nord , Liban-Sud , Mont-Liban , Nabatiye
Area: total: 10 ,400 sq km land: 10 ,230 sq km water: 170 sq km
Background: Following the capture of Syria from the Ottoman Empire by Anglo-French forces in 1918 , France received a mandate over this territory and separated out the region of Lebanon in 1920. France granted this area independence in 1943. A lengthy civil war (1975-1990) devastated the country , but Lebanon has since made progress toward rebuilding its political institutions. Under the Ta'if Accord - the blueprint for national reconciliation - the Lebanese established a more equitable political system , particularly by giving Muslims a greater voice in the political process while institutionalizing sectarian divisions in the government. Since the end of the war , Lebanon has conducted several successful elections. Most militias have been disbanded , and the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) have extended authority over about two-thirds of the country. Hizballah , a radical Shia organization listed by the US State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization , retains its weapons. During Lebanon's civil war , the Arab League legitimized in the Ta'if Accord Syria's troop deployment , numbering about 16 ,000 based mainly east of Beirut and in the Bekaa Valley. Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon in May 2000 and the passage in October 2004 of UNSCR 1559 - a resolution calling for Syria to withdraw from Lebanon and end its interference in Lebanese affairs - encouraged some Lebanese groups to demand that Syria withdraw its forces as well. The assassination of former Prime Minister Rafiq HARIRI and 20 others in February 2005 led to massive demonstrations in Beirut against the Syrian presence ("the Cedar Revolution") , and Syria withdrew the remainder of its military forces in April 2005. In May-June 2005 , Lebanon held its first legislative elections since the end of the civil war free of foreign interference , handing a majority to the bloc led by Saad HARIRI , the slain prime minister's son. Lebanon continues to be plagued by violence - Hizballah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in July 2006 leading to a 34-day conflict with Israel. The LAF in May-September 2007 battled Sunni extremist group Fatah al-Islam in the Nahr al-Barid Palestinian refugee camp; and the country has witnessed a string of politically motivated assassinations since the death of Rafiq HARIRI. Lebanese politicians in November 2007 were unable to agree on a successor to Emile LAHUD when he stepped down as president , creating a political vacuum until the election of Army Commander Michel SULAYMAN in May 2008 and the formation of a new cabinet in July 2008.
