1982 Lebanon War

6 June, 1982
Israel invades and occupies southern Lebanon.

1 September, 1982
Under international guarantees of safety, the PLO leaves Lebanon as a result of tremendous civilian casualties by Israel. It is estimated that in the first 2 weeks alone, 15,000 civilians were killed by Israeli bombs.

From the standpoint of Israel, the invasion led to minimal success having only removed the PLO presence from South Lebanon and destroying the South Lebanon infrastructure.
