Ankara, August 30: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has adopted a resolution on Thursday to extend its ruling of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) until August 31, 2020.

The 15-member panel has adopted the resolution unanimously, extending the UNIFIL’s ordinance until Aug 31, 2020, and reiterated its call for Lebanon and Israel to hail a permanent truce in the region, as well as, a long-term solution to it, according to the UN statement.

Underlining the positive role of the UNIFIL, the panel called on the government of Lebanon to facilitate the UN mission’s access in the nation, according to Anadolu news agency.

The UN council also lashed out at all aerial and ground assaults and acts of breaches of the Blue Line, urging all groups to “respect the cessation of hostilities, to prevent any violation of the Blue Line and to respect it in its entirety, and to cooperate fully with the United Nations and UNIFIL”.

The 120-kilometre long Blue Line is a border sponsored by the UN established between Lebanon and Israel in 2000.

“The council also urged the government of Israel to expedite the withdrawal of its army from northern Ghajar [village] without further delay in coordination with UNIFIL,” it added.

Following a conflict between Lebanese outfit Hezbollah and the Israeli forces, the UNIFIL was tasked with maintaining the UNSC resolution 1701 which called for a permanent ceasefire between the two rebellious sides, as well as, an Israeli forces withdrawal from southern Lebanon.
