UNIFIL patrol set up, stoned in south Lebanon
A+ A-

BEIRUT: UNIFIL peacekeepers were lured out of their vehicles and stoned by civilians during a patrol in south Lebanon, according to a spokeswoman at the U.N. agency Friday. 

According to Andrea Tenenti, a driver in a civilian car overtook the patrol Thursday afternoon before stopping to get out of his vehicle and signal that he needed assistance. 

“As some patrol members dismounted from their vehicles to assist the person, a number of civilians arrived in vehicles, surrounded the patrol and started throwing stones at the UNIFIL vehicles,” Tenenti said. 

No one was hurt and the patrol left the area. The two UNIFIL vehicles sustained some damage. UNIFIL and the Army are investigating the incident.
