United Nations – UN Condemns Killing Of Peacekeeper During Israel-Hezbollah Fire Exchange


    U.N. peacekeepers of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) patrol the Lebanese-Israeli border in Adaisseh village, southern Lebanon January 29, 2015. REUTERSUnited Nations – The U.N. Security Council is condemning “in the strongest terms” last week’s killing of a Spanish peacekeeper in southern Lebanon.

    Wednesday’s statement comes a week after Cpl. Francisco Javier Soria Toledo was killed during the Israeli military’s exchange of fire with the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group in a disputed border area.

    Spain’s U.N. ambassador quickly blamed Israel, and a U.N. diplomat has said Israel apologized through several sources, including an apology from its ambassador in Madrid to Spain’s foreign minister.

    The U.N. is investigating the incident, and the council statement says members look forward to its “immediate completion.”

    The violence along Lebanon’s border, which also killed two Israeli soldiers, was the deadliest escalation on the disputed frontier since the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel.

    2. They were obviously doing such a great job at peacekeeping in Lebanon…
      as well as in Syria (where they ran across the border into Israel for protection) …
      and as for Gaza – well, I guess they were stock piling the peaceful Hamas rockets in the school there.
