Danon welcomes new head of UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon
“UNIFIL is an important force, with more than 10,000 soldiers,” said Danon. “Its more robust mandate is designed to push back against the blatant, unauthorized arms buildup of Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, in southern Lebanon. With a new commander, there is a new opportunity to fulfill more of this important mission.”
