Blurb/Shorttext:
The hostilities that took place from 12 July to 14 August 2006 between Israel and Hezbollah had a devastating impact on the Lebanese environment. The oil spill following the attacks on the Jiyeh power plant has led to the worst environmental crisis in Lebanon's history. Fifteen years after the deliberate environmental degradations committed by Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Gulf War, direct attacks on the environment still remain part of military strategy. However, there is now an increasing international awareness that some military actions should be considered environmental crimes. This book then explores the existing legal mechanisms to hold States and individuals accountable for deliberate wartime environmental damage in the light of the “Second Lebanon War”.
