UNIFIL isn't serious...

Interesting report from Israel.
The talks broke down when the Israelis demanded that UNIFIL adopt more aggressive rules of engagement. What particularly angered the IDF officers was an interview Pellegrini gave The Jerusalem Post last week in which he said the peacekeeping force would not actively engage Hizbullah guerrillas, even if they were in the midst of an attack against Israel.

The officers even presented Pellegrini with a copy of the interview at the meeting and confronted him with his comments, which they said were in direct contradiction to previous understandings and interpretations of UN Security Council Resolution 1701.

"We demand more effective rules of engagement," the high-ranking IDF officer said. "If they don't adopt them, we are prepared to stay in Lebanon for as long as necessary."

The United Nations is providing Iran's Hezbollah army with human shields through UNIFIL, that was their raison d'etre prior to the recent Lebanon skirmish. Hezbollah needs time to rebuild though, so the UN provided a bigger shield now.
