UNIFIL launched investigation to determine South Lebanon’s latest developments

The international forces operating in southern Lebanon, UNIFIL, announced in a statement, “On the night of April 24-25, it detected a missile launch from southern Lebanon towards Israel. Immediately, the UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Major-General Aroldo Lazaro reached out to the authorities on both sides of the Blue Line, and urged them to exercise restraint. However, the Israeli army responded by firing dozens of shells into Lebanon. Major General Lazaro called on all parties to avoid further escalation, expressing concern over the disproportionate response.

As soon as the bombing ended, UNIFIL opened an investigation to determine the circumstances. Peacekeepers are also working with the Lebanese Armed Forces to enhance security throughout the UNIFIL area of ​​operations, and reduce the risk of further provocative actions.”
