UNIFIL today marked the International Day of Peace with a ceremony at its headquarters in Naqoura, south Lebanon.
UN peacekeeping in south Lebanon does not always mean patrolling towns and villages or round-the-clock monitoring of the 120-kilometre Blue Line.
For a group of UNIFIL Indian peacekeepers, it’s far more than that.
UNIFIL donated a significant number of UN assets to the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), its intelligence wing and the Lebanese General Security over the past week, with the shared objective of promoting a climate of peace and stability in the UNIFIL area of operations in south Lebanon.
UNIFIL Ghanaian peacekeepers recently conducted training exercises for Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) personnel, geared towards fostering cooperation and improving working relations between the two forces, in the south-western Lebanese village of Kfar Dunin.
