At a weekly street market in the Bazourieh district of Tyre, vendors stocked with goods eagerly welcomed troops in bright blue hats.The Italian peacekeepers are stationed in western Lebanon, covering an area of around 102 towns and villages from Litani River all the way to Bint Jbeil.When asked whether the Italian peacekeepers on the border fear any act of terrorism targeting them, Margheriti said the good relations they have built with locals would not allow that to happen.Down on the border between Lebanon and Israel, Margheriti said they help the Lebanese Army monitor the Blue Line. The Italian peacekeepers and Lebanese Army troops regularly train together as well.
