Caption

Lebanon, satellite image. Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon, occupies the triangular peninsula just left of centre. The bright white strip in the south of Beirut is Rafic Hariri International Airport, the only international airport in the country. Much of Lebanon's land is mountainous (brown), with only the coastal regions supporting extensive vegetation (green). The airport and much of the infrastructure of Lebanon were destroyed when Israel invaded the country in July 2006. Photographed on 22nd June 2000 by the Landsat 7 satellite, which orbits at an altitude of 705 kilometres.
