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).
