  • Description

    During the Lebanon's 19-month civil war -- finally halted by a mainly Syrian Arab truce force of 39,000 men in mid-November -- the members of the Lebanese Front fought the Palestinian commandos and Lebanese leftists. The rightists had been angered by the presence of so many Palestinians in Lebanon, contending they encroached on Lebanese sovereignty. The Lebanese Front is believed to be advocating sweeping changes to the Lebanese political system, which has been in use since the country gained independence from France in 1943.
