These Are Just 10 of the Wars In the Past Decade

  • 2 of 3

4. Lebanon War (2003-2006)
The main opponents of this 34-day military conflict in Lebanon, northern Israel and the Golan Heights were Hezbollah paramilitary forces and the Israeli military. The war ended when Israel stopped its naval blockade of Lebanon. Some 1,300 Lebanese and 165 Israelis died in the conflict and more than a million residents of both countries were displaced.

5. Mexican Drug War (2006 – present)
The Mexican government continues to fight an armed conflict against rival drug cartels, in an effort to put down drug-related violence. An estimate 60,000 — some say more than 100,000 — have died since 2006.

 

6. Tuareg Rebellion (2007-2009)
The Tuareg are a formerly nomadic people, some of whom now live in the Sahara desert regions of northern Mali and Niger; they have been revolting against the governments of these countries in since 1916. Both Algeria and Libya sought to broker peace deals to bring the 2007-2009 rebellion to an end.
