Ceasefire Surveillance Committee

CEASEFIRE SURVEILLANCE COMMITTEE

Organization created on 26 April 1996, following the Israeli military intervention in South Lebanon (Operation "Grapes of Wrath") against Hizbullah, which, according to Human Rights Watch, killed 154 people and wounded 351. The Ceasefire Surveillance Committee was made up of representatives of the United States, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, and France and was responsible for overseeing the agreement that ended the fighting, which required the belligerents to refrain from firing on civilians on both sides of the border and from launching operations from zones populated by civilians. On 11 February 2000, Israel withdrew from the committee, leading to its de facto suspension.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
