Four years ago on July 12th, 2006, a military conflict started in Lebanon and northern Israel.
Nearly 2000 people were killed in 34 days of fighting.
The conflict began when Hezbollah militants fired rockets at Israeli border towns as a diversion for an anti-tank missile attack. Israel responded with massive air-strikes and artillery fire on various targets.
15-hundred Lebanese civilians were killed, and the country's civil infrastructure was severely damaged.
In August 2006, the UN Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 1701 in an effort to end the hostilities.
