Siege of Tel al-Zaatar

January 1976 - Aug 12, 1976

The siege of Tel al-Zaatar was an armed siege of Tel al-Zaatar, a fortified, UNRWA-administered refugee camp housing Palestinian refugees in northeastern Beirut. The siege was carried out in January 1976 by Christian Lebanese militias led by the Lebanese Front as part of a wider campaign to expel Palestinians, especially those affiliated with the opposing Palestine Liberation Organization from northern Beirut. The siege, which began in January turned into a full-scale military assault in June of that year and ended in August.
