Abstract

This article profiles the low-grade war being waged in south Lebanon's "security zone," the last hot spot of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Depopulated by war and occupation, virtually cut off from the rest of Lebanon, the narrow strip of land hosts an array of protagonists-UN observers, Israeli soldiers and their proxies, Hizballah, and even a remnant of Lebanese army and police. Caught in between, the population in this zone of moral ambiguities and paradoxes, absurdities and anomalies, is forced to make the compromises necessary to survive.
