Mapping the Twilight Zone
Here's where Ghajar sits in relation to Lebanon, Israel, and Syria.
Red Line — The initial Israeli advance after the 1967 war.
Blue Line — When Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in May 2000, they withdrew their forces south of this line.
Purple Line — Following the 2006 war between Lebanon and Israel, Israeli forces took control of the entire village and established the new boundary along a security fence on this line. The current negotiations surround a possible Israeli withdrawal from the area between the purple line and the blue line.
