Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), a peacekeeping mission created by the UN Security Council in March 1978 to monitor the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Lebanese territory to the international border and the restoration of international peace and security in the area. It first provides an overview of the conflict between Lebanon and Israel, paying particular attention to the Operation “Peace for Galilee” and the Israeli occupation of Southern Lebanon. It then outlines UNIFIL’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations, along with the lessons that can be learned from its experience.
