9 Scopus citations


The Lebanese question often overshadowed the relations between France and Faisal during his reign in Syria. The direct Franco-Arab confrontation, which resulted in the French defeat of the Arab army in Maisalun and the explusion of Faisal from Syria, began and ended with two events involving Lebanon: the taking of Beirut by the Arab forces in October 1918, and the attempt by members of the Administrative Council of Mount Lebanon to defect to Damascus in July 1920.
