LEBANON AND THE MIDDLE EAST IN 2014

Vision During The first months of 2014, the political situation in Lebanon will remain as it was in 2013. Starting during the summer, the stability will become very weak and then a wave of violence will spread through the country, mostly in the South of Lebanon and Beirut. Between Lebanon and Israel an open conflict is on the horizon. Between late summer and the end of the year, Israel will find itself involved in a bloody conflict, either directly with Lebanon or a new violent conflict with Palestine. It won’t be an open war between Israel and Iran. The autumn conflict for Lebanon won’t last long but it will be violent. Reaching end of the year, the situation will regain some stability
