UNIFIL Statement on rocket fire incidents on 20 July 2021
Just before 4 a.m. this morning, UNIFIL radar detected the firing of rockets from an area north-west of Al Qulaylah toward Israel.
Our radar subsequently detected return artillery fire by the IDF.
UNIFIL is in direct contact with the parties to urge maximum restraint and avoid further escalation.
Our liaison and coordination mechanisms are fully engaged.
Together with the Lebanese Armed Forces, we have increased security in the area and have launched an investigation.
