Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
UNIFIL's terms of deployment were slightly altered during the annual renewal of its mandate by the UN Security Council at the end of August.

To the anger of Hezbollah, the new wording states that the force "is allowed to conduct its operations independently".

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah condemned the changed rules as "a violation of Lebanese sovereignty" that served Israel's interests.
