UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Major-General Michael Beary today called on the newly appointed Prime Minister Saad Hariri in his office in Beirut.
Some of the UNIFIL positions along the Blue Line are remote. To mark the end of the year Major General Michael Beary, UNIFIL’s Head of Mission and Force Commander, chose to visit a number of these isolated posts to chat with the peacekeepers who are working over the festive season.
Tala al-Zain from Cadmous College, a school in Tyre, points at a bowl on a table heaving with tasty Korean food and asks a UNIFIL peacekeeper from the Republic of Korea, “Is this potato?” She gets a nod, tastes the dish and beams. Then quickly takes another bite.
