"Resolution 1559"

Definition


This term refers to UN Security Council Resolution 1559 (9/04), which calls for strengthening the sovereignty of the Lebanese government, the withdrawal of foreign forces from Lebanon and the disarmament of militias. ​

Background


The resolution intended to bolster the governing abilities of the Lebanese regime over its entire territory, in light of the presence of the Syrian army in Lebanon, as well as due to the existence of armed militias that do not adhere to Lebanese sovereignty (predominantly Hizbullah). While Syria indeed withdrew from Lebanon, the disbanding and disarmament of the militias and the deployment of the Lebanese army were not fully implemented.
