U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley Friday accused Irish Maj. Gen. Michael Beary, the commander of United Nations forces in Lebanon, of turning a blind eye to Iran's covert arming of Hizballah. Speaking to reporters in New York, Haley said: "General Beary says there are no Hizballah weapons [in South Lebanon], That’s an embarrassing lack of understanding on what’s going on around him. Hezbollah openly brags about their weapons. They parade them before TV cameras. The secretary general [of the UN] reports have confirmed this. For the UNIFIL commander to deny it … shows that we need to have changes in UNIFIL," Haley said. The force’s mandate is up for renewal next month.
