A group of young children visited the UNIFIL Headquarters in Naqoura, south Lebanon, last week to know about various aspects of the peacekeeping mission’s work.
Earlier this month, UNIFIL lost one of its peacekeepers, from India. On 16 July, the Mission’s leadership, representatives of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and fellow peacekeepers paid their last respect to Sergeant Ramesh Singh, who died of medical conditions on 10 July.
Several fatal incidents and injuries are commonplace in Lebanon as workers carry out electricity maintenance works, trimming of trees along main streets and orchards, and other similar situations due to lack of appropriate equipment and devices.
A team of medical professionals of UNIFIL’s Nepalese Battalion (NEPBATT) carried out a four-day long training on first aid with members of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and fellow peacekeepers at their main base in Meiss ej Jabal, south Lebanon, last week.
