Map showing the Blue Line demarcation line between Lebanon and Israel, established by the UN after the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon after its short 1978 invasion called "Operation Litani". It follows the 1949 cease-fire line, also known as the Green Line, as well as the somewhat contested Lebanese-Syrian border towards the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The map is made by Thomas Blomberg, using the UNIFIL map, deployment as of July 2006 as per source. Tribulation: Thomas Blomberg.

United Nations Security Council resolution 444, adopted on 19 January 1979. It recalled the previous resolutions 425 (1978), 426 (1978), 427 (1978) and 434 (1978), and considered the report from the Secretary-General on the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and how both Lebanon and Israel (more so) were screwing about with the intent of undermining the mission of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). The UN slammed the screwing about, especially Israel's bad attitude and called for peace talks.

It was already hopelessly convolved and intertwined in to the existing issues on the 1978 South Lebanon conflict, the Blue Line and the Israel-Lebanon conflict.
