He reminds us that in 1982, Israel invaded southern Lebanon with the objective of driving the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) out of the region, which eventually forced the PLO to relocate to Tunisia. Despite achieving this immediate goal, Israel’s occupation of southern Lebanon continued for 18 years until 2000, leading to significant instability and the eventual rise of Hezbollah as a powerful militant organization. Ambassador Arun Singh highlights that this historical context underscores the difficulty of eradicating militant groups and achieving long-term peace and stability through military action alone.
