Abstract

This book is the most comprehensive study about Lebanon’s occupied southern zone to appear to date in any language. The study is divided into two parts. The first, “The Residents of the Occupied Zone,” includes the following topics: the history of the Lebanese-Palestinian border until the eruption of the 1976 Lebanese civil war; the education, health, agriculture, and service sectors in the occupied zone; the history of the “Southern Lebanese Army” and its predecessor the “Free Lebanon Army;” the confiscation of land; real-estate transactions; prisons and detention camps; the Khiam prisoners’ uprising; and the people’s resistance. The second part, “The Migrants and Immigrants from the Occupied Zone,” focuses on the migrants from the occupied zone living elsewhere in Lebanon, and their conditions in their current places of residence.
