Lebanon, officially the Lebanese Republic, is a country in Western Asia, on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south.
In the 22nd century, Lebanon's internal peace was broken by Christian terrorist groups, some of whom were as dangerous as the Jewish Second Irgun was in nearby Palestine.
Lebanon was a French colony that was conquered by the Race's Conquest Fleet during their invasion of the Earth along with the rest of the Middle East in 1942. It was recognized as a Race colony after the Peace of Cairo in 1944.
