Tenenti: “To practice self-control.”

The spokesperson for UNIFIL, Andrea Tenenti, announced, “Early this morning, peacekeeping troops under UNIFIL observed the launching of several rockets from the southeast of Lebanon towards the territories occupied by Israel in the area of Kafr Shuba. In response to this, Israel fired artillery into Lebanon.”

He further stated, “We are in contact with authorities on both sides of the Blue Line at all levels to contain the situation and avoid further dangerous escalation.”

Tenenti emphasized that “UNIFIL peacekeepers remain in their positions, continue to carry out their tasks, and are staying in their shelters to ensure their safety.”

He added, “We urge all parties to exercise restraint and make use of the communication and coordination mechanisms available to UNIFIL to de-escalate and prevent a rapid deterioration of the security situation.”
