“UNIFIL is the cornerstone of South Lebanon,” confirms UN’s Del Col

In an interview with the Italian “Nova” agency, the head of the temporary peacekeeping forces operating in southern Lebanon “UNIFIL”, General Stefano Del Col, indicated that “the UN mission has ensured 16 years of stability in Lebanon.”

“There is a generation of young people in southern Lebanon who did not know war. UNIFIL is a fundamental innovation for the people of the south, and it guarantees at least the stability of the region so that the political and diplomatic components of the countries can dialogue with each other,” he confirmed.

It is scheduled to hand over the leadership of the UN mission to Spanish General Aroldo Lazaro Sainz, after the end of Del Col’s mandate.
