ABSTRACT
The article examines the causes and consequences of the Israeli-Hizbullah 34-day war. Possible explanations for the outburst of violence in Lebanon are offered. Israel admitted that one of the main reasons for the fighting was the implementation of the September 2, 2005 United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1559, which called for, among other things, the disarming of Hizbullah.
