Major-General Paolo Serra, Commander of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), on Sunday stressed that U.N. peacekeepers will continue to fully cooperate with the Lebanese army and the local authorities, calling on everyone to benefit from the calm the South has been enjoying.
Serra noted that the past five years were the calmest for southern Lebanon.
He also stressed that UNIFIL was committed to help the parties preserve the cessation of hostilities and respect U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701 which ended the 2006 war between Israel and Hizbullah.
