This chapter provides an overview of Israel's military occupation of Lebanon in 2014. It presents key casualty data gathered by local and international news outlets. Both parties to the conflict are bound by customary and conventional international humanitarian law and human rights law, including customary international humanitarian law (IHL). The conflict stems from the dispute over the Shebaa Farms, an eight-square-mile area of disputed land in Southern Lebanon that has been occupied by Israel since the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. The land is of strategic importance due to the water it provides. In 2001, the Arab league expressed concern over the military presence and stated their full support for Lebanon and the disputed land's complete liberation. The dispute reported two wounded Israeli soldiers as a result of attacks by explosive devices. Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for such attacks.
