Here is some evidence of the diversion of water, and an idea as to why Israel wants to dislodge the Lebanese from the border. The Israeli side of the border is marked with thick and lush greens. The Lebanese side is marked with dry and arid yellows. during the 22 year Israeli occupation of South Lebanon, all Lebanese water resources were diverted to Israel [BBC]. This resulted in a stark difference between two lands separated by a 10 meter dirt road. Israel to date threatens Lebanon with military action whenever Lebanese farmers attempt to irrigate Lebanese lands with Lebanese waters [BBC].
