Israel: May 21, 2000


Hezbollah shelled Israeli occupied Golan Heights, in order to stake a Lebanese claim on part of the Heights (Syria claims the entire area, and this is one of many territorial disputes between Lebanon and Syria.) In South Lebanon, an increasing number of pro-Israeli militia are deserting to the Lebanese army or (especially in the case of officers) fleeing to Israel. Israel has announced that it may be out of south Lebanon by June 1st, instead of July 1st.
