Fallen Spanish peacekeeper remembered

UNIFIL Spanish peacekeepers held a memorial service last week in honour of Lance Corporal Francisco Javier Soria Toledo of the Spanish Army, who died in the line of duty five years ago while serving for peace in south-eastern Lebanon.

UNIFIL Sector East Commander Brigadier General Marcos Llago Navarro led the solemn ceremony held on 29 January at a UN position near Ghajar along the Blue Line, the exact location where the UNIFIL Spanish peacekeeper was killed in an artillery fire on 28 January 2015.

Corporal Toledo was a well-respected and dedicated peacekeeper actively working in supporting UNIFIL's mandate under Security Council resolution 1701.
