United Nations Interim Force spokesperson Andrea Tenenti said on Saturday that a dispute occurred between peacekeeping troops and the residents of the southern border town of Maroun al-Ras .

According to the National News Agency, the UNIFIL peacekeepers were taking snapshots of the area when several civilians came across and took the camera from them.

The UNIFIL and the Lebanese army are working on resolving the incident and recover the camera, the NNA said.

However, security sources told Future News that a UNIFIL patrol was intercepted by members from Hizbullah.

Buck this country or any country that allows outlaws to rule. The day this country has self respect is the day hell freezes over.

What is UNIFIL doing in Lebanon anyways? I have yet to see what purpose their presence has served.
