Middle East

Events in the Middle East in 2006 illustrated the magnitude of the instability in the region, the everwidening divide between Israel and its neighbours, and the bleak chances for achieving peace and security. The kidnapping of Israeli military personnel by Palestinian groups and Hizbullah in Lebanon in separate incidents, the continued firing of Qassam rockets towards Israel and the strong Israeli military response and ensuing humanitarian crisis were major setbacks to progress made the previous year in rebuilding trust and breaking the cycle of bloodshed.
