Resolution 799

RESOLUTION 799

Passed on 18 December 1992 by the UN Security Council, this resolution, citing the fourth Geneva Convention and a number of previous UN resolutions, demands the immediate return of the more than 400 Palestinians who had just been banished to Lebanon by Israeli authorities. On 17 December 1992, during the first Intifada, Israel expelled these alleged HAMAS sympathizers from the Occupied Territories into the no-man's-land beyond the Lebanese border. The Israelis assumed they would proceed into Lebanon and exile, but instead they set up a camp in full view of the world's media and stayed there for months. They named their camp Return (al-Awdah).

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.
