UN envoy calls on Security Council to ‘significantly improve functioning’ of UNIFIL

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon calls on the Security Council to “significantly improve UNIFIL’s functioning,” claiming the peacekeeping force in Lebanon has been “paralyzed” by Hezbollah, which has intensif[ied] its terror campaign in the region.

“If Hezbollah continues to paralyze UNIFIL operations and intensify its terror campaign in the region, there will be no escape from [us] drawing conclusions on the [continued] need for this force in its current form,” Danon says in a statement after the UNSC met yesterday to discuss UNIFIL operations.
