Congressional Research Service Reports on the Middle East

Courtesy of the Federation of American Scientists, here are some useful and interesting Congressional Research Service Reports on the Middle East.

Of particular interest is the July 21, 2006 report on the Hamas/Hezbollah-Israel war (PDF link).

The extension of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into the Lebanese arena has created a multifaceted crisis which cuts across a number of U.S. policy issues in the Middle East. This report not only discusses the current military situation, but its implications for regional stability, Syrian influence in Lebanon and calls for Lebanese independence, Iranian regional aspirations and its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, and energy security. This report will be updated as events unfold.
