The role of water resources in the evolution of the Israeli-Lebanese border

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Zionist Organization aspired to include the entire Galilee region up to the lower reaches of the Litani River within Palestine. The river itself was the desired northern border of the country. The Zionists supported their position by employing instrumental arguments that were largely related to the availability of water resources. Residents of the upper Galilee, on the other hand, demanded that they be included with Lebanon, using their trade and cultural links with Beirut. Access to the water resources is likely to influence negotiations between Israel and Lebanon
