A liaison officer with UNIFIL who recently completed his tour of duty with the force told the French newspaper cited by the Post, “When we would detect military activities in our area, especially near the Blue Line [border with Israel], the Lebanese Army would prevent us from posting observers. It is as if those decisions did not come from them. Everyone knows that Hezbollah is using the area for the next war.”
A Finnish officer serving with UNIFIL said that some of the UNIFIL forces spy for Hezbollah.
“I can assure you that Indonesian peacekeepers are constantly reporting Israeli movements to various Lebanese actors,” he said.
He also said that some of UNIFIL’s 585 local employees “do not hide their Hezbollah membership.”
