A Lebanese woman from Shebaa village in south Lebanon carrying her baby holds a Lebanese flag outside the Movenpick Hotel in Beirut April 6, 2005 where U.N. envoy Terje Roed-Larsen held a press conference. Dozens of Shebaa villagers gathered outside the hotel to protest statements by the U.N. envoy that the disputed Shebaa Farms border area was Syrian, not Lebanese as claimed by Beirut (REUTERS/ Jamal Saidi). A good place to start on the Shebaa Farms ownership issue is Asher Kaufman's "Who owns the Shebaa farms? Chronicle of a territorial dispute."
