Resolution 1052


Passed by the UN Security Council on 18 April 1996, a week after Israel launched Operation Grapes of Wrath against the Lebanese Hizbullah, this resolution demanded the immediate cessation of hostilities by all concerned parties. The Security Council reaffirmed its commitment to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Lebanon, as well as to the security of all states in the region. Finally, the council asked all states in the region to oversee the security and freedom of movement of the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to allow it to fulfill its mandate without obstacle or interference ("deploring" the incident on the same day, 18 April, in which over a hundred civilians were killed when Israel shelled a UNIFIL compound). Operation Grapes of Wrath ended on 28 April.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
