9/11/08): Syria's regional proxy to the north of the Jewish state, Hezbollah, stated that even in the event that Lebanon's Shebaa Farms are returned, the resistance organization would continue to challenge Israel militarily.
(9/16/08): An article from the Middle East Times in Thursday's editions incorrectly described Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee. The lake is in Israel bordering the Golan Heights. The article also incorrectly characterized the Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms area, which is disputed between Syria and Lebanon.
: The United Nations has certified that Shebaa Farms
is Syrian. Syria allows Lebanon to maintain that it is Lebanese, to provide a pretext for Hezbollah's continued existence despite Israel's full withdrawal from Lebanese territory.
