Some pictures and maps and stuff to help you understand the current Arab-Israeli War.

Here is a picture with the countries involved – Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, and Syria.

Here is a picture with cities of concern in the northern front. Although Damascus is the capital of Syria, Latakia is where the President of Syria and/or Khalid Masha’al are right now. The palace buzzed by the Israeli Air Force was at Latakia. Baalbek is where Hezbollah and one of Iran’s forces are very involved.

Here is a picture of northern Israel, to give an idea where the cities struck by Hezbollah are.

Many people talk about the “Bekaa Valley.” In Syria, the Bekaa Governate consists of most of the Bekaa Valley. I am including here a graphic of the Bekaa Governate (which is in red).

And finally, from The Jerusalem Post, a graphic showing which cities were struck.
