The Lebanese Hizb'Alla organisation and its involvement in the abduction of Western citizens is a complex subject veiled in secrecy which plagued the conduct of foreign policy for most Western governments for over a decade.

This study demonstrates that the abduction of Western citzens by the Hizb'Allah was motivated either by internal organisational requirements or in alignment with Syrian and Iranian interests and that mechanisms for the resolution of the hostage-crisis were subject to continuous interaction between Hizb'Allah, Iran, and Syria, influenced by internal Lebanese, regional and international events.
