Overview
UNIFIL
  • UNIFIL was created by the Security Council in
    1978 under resolutions 425 and 426 to confirm
    Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon, restore
    international peace and security and assist the
    Lebanese Government in restoring its effective
    authority in the area.
  • Following the July/August 2006 crisis, the
    Council enhanced the Force under resolution 1701
    and decided that in addition to the original
    mandate, it would, among other things, monitor
    the cessation of hostilities accompany and
    support the Lebanese armed forces as they deploy
    throughout the south of Lebanon and extend its
    assistance to help ensure humanitarian access to
    civilian populations and the voluntary and safe
    return of displaced persons.
