Israel invades Lebanon in order to put an end to Palestinian terrorist bases located in the southern region of that country. Israel is successful in pushing the PLO north of the Litani river, but the Israeli Defense Forces have to pull back again as part of a UN peacekeeping agreement.

For the past decade, the Palestinian Liberation Organization has been operating from bases in southern Lebanon and in fact even governing in the region a if it were a Palestinian state. The Lebanese government has been unable or simply unwilling to assert its own authority in the region and put an end to the terrorist attacks against Israel.
