This structure was entirely built by the specialist units of the Folgore Brigade’s Engineering Corps. These same units also constructed an aviary at the Institute for children with special needs in Aita as Shab.

These outreach activities are carried out in line with other operational functions, as highlighted by Brigadier General Vergori. “UNIFIL combines over 400 daily operational activities, of which more than 220 are conducted by the West Sector, in full compliance with the mandate of United Nations Resolution 1701,” he stated. The force places great emphasis on meeting the needs of the local population, supported by motivation, a serious intent, and respect for the cultures and customs of the communities in Southern Lebanon.

All activities in the Operational Theater are conducted under the coordination and guidance of the Inter-Force Joint Command (COVI), which is the high command of the Defense led by Lieutenant General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo. COVI is responsible for the planning, coordination, and direction of military operations, national and multinational joint exercises, and related activities.

UNIFIL’s ongoing efforts reflect its commitment to fulfilling its mandate while prioritizing the welfare of the local communities it serves. The projects completed under the guidance of the Joint Task Force Lebanon Sector West and the Italian leadership demonstrate the positive impact of international collaboration in supporting Lebanon’s development and stability.
