There is a small but recognisable community of Indians in Lebanon consisting of laborers and engineers mainly working in the industrial sector; some have opened their own businesses. The Indian migrants work in sectors of the Lebanese economy such as construction, manufacturing and the service sector.[1]

In 2006, the Indian population in Lebanon declined due to the Israel-Hezbollah War. The evacuees were first brought by Indian naval ships from the Lebanese capital of Beirut to Larnaca in Cyprus and then flown to India, under an Indian military-coordinated exercise dubbed as "Operation Sukoon."
