PLO: The Palestine Liberation Organization is an organization founded in 1964 with the purpose of the “liberation of Palestine” through armed struggle, with much of its violence aimed at Israeli civilians.
1982 PLO War:- The 1982 Lebanon War, or Operation Peace for Galilee began on 6 June 1982, when the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) invaded southern Lebanon, after repeated attacks and counter-attacks between the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) operating in southern Lebanon and the IDF that had caused civilian casualties on both sides of the border.
Hezbollah:- literally “Party of Allah” or “Party of God” is a Shia Islamist political party and militant group based in Lebanon.
Intifada:- An intifada is a rebellion or uprising, or a resistance movement.
Hamas:- Hamas is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist militant organization. It has been the de facto governing authority of the Gaza Strip since its takeover of that area in 2007.

The Oslo Accords marked the start of the Oslo process, a peace process aimed at achieving a peace treaty based on United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338
