    till 1916- Lebanon is part of the Ottoman Empire

    1921 to 1941 - French Mandate

    1943 - Lebanon constitution is established.

    1943 - Independence.

    1967 - The PLO operates in Lebanon

    1975 to 1990 - Civil war.

    Israel and Syria invade Lebanon.

    2000 - Israel withdraws from South Lebanon

    2005 - Hariri is assassinated. Syria leaves Lebanon.

    2006 - July war.

    Present - Two opposed groups are struggling for power, one that is backed by the USA and which accuses Syria of assassinating Hariri (14 march alliance), and another that is backed by Iran and Syria and which accuses the USA of meddling in Lebanese affairs (8 march alliance).

    short line brief history.

    Empires, occupations, wars, and destruction devour the soul of lebanon, yet the 10452km2 managed to survive and make it out alive to the 2007 era.
