BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – The United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) stated on Friday that the Lebanese-Israeli border was ‘quiet’ after the Israeli strikes in Syria.
“We are monitoring the overall situation, but in relation to our area, the situation has been quiet,” said Andrea Tenenti, spokesman for the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
Tenenti told AFP that the U.N. force had not increased its patrols in the south, which number around 450 per day.
On Thursday morning, Israel carried out unprecedented strikes against what it said were Iranian logistics and intelligence targets in Syria.
Despite these claims by Israel, the Syrian military maintains they did not initiate the conflict, adding that their positions came under attack first.
