UNIFIL asked to also probe Hizballah violations in S. Lebanon

Ahead of the UN Security Council vote this month on renewing the UN peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in a letter to the SC that he wants the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to beef up its efforts “regarding the illegal presence of armed personnel, weapons or infrastructure inside its area of operations.” US Ambassador Nikki Haley added: “Those arms which are almost entirely in the hands of Hizballah terrorists –- threaten the security and stability of the region."
The UN secretary will discuss UNIFIL’s mission when he pays his first visit in this capacity to Israel and Ramallah later this month.
