2006 – The Second Lebanon War

By Noa Lessof Gendler (Bogeret)

2006 was the year of the Lebanon War. It was brutal and bloody, with accusations of indiscriminate targeting of military and civilians on both sides. The thirty-four day conflict resulted in two thousand deaths, thousands more injured, and a military stalemate - both sides stubbornly claimed victory. In remembering this period of violence we should strengthen our resolve to campaign for peace in the region and the obligation of all parties to curtail the suffering that such violence causes.
