The South Lebanon security belt administration was a local provisional governance body in South Lebanon, in the South Lebanon security belt areas. It replaced the Free Lebanon State institutions and operated from 1985 until 2000 with full Israeli logistic and military support. It controlled 328 square miles of territory in southern Lebanon.
During its functioning years, the administration was headed by Antoine Lahad, a Maronite Christian claiming the rank of general. Lahad's 2,400-strong South Lebanese Army, equipped and paid by Israel and supported by 1,000 Israeli troops was the armed force of the zone.
