UNIFIL does not patrol at night....

It's too dangerous, so they take nights off in Lebanon.
Hizbullah terrorists are free to roam at night without fear of being identified by the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), according to a report by the German paper Der Spiegel.

Spanish UNIFIL official Richard Ortax admitted to the paper that no patrols are carried out at night “because of the danger involved.” UNIFIL commanders said their function is to "observe changes in the behavior of the local population."

One junior officer told Der Spiegel he was glad that his battalion had only left its camp once. "It's absurd," he said. "We landed here and set up our tent city, but since then we've only left the camp to drive around and to make sure that we're seen."

The report cites a long tradition of UNIFIL inaction, which it says allowed time for a Finnish contingent to construct a giant sauna and an Indian contingent to decorate its base with traditional Indian artwork.

The UN is fully disfunctional as usual.

UNIFIL serves its purpose by being human shields for Iran's Hezbollah Army, no need for them to patrol anything.

Although they might not like being human shields when the next battle in this war starts, the Arabs are going to have to lobby the UN hard in order to keep these human shields in place. Each of their deaths will be a media victory for Hezbollah, so they will target them relentlessly in the first days of the next battle.

Umm, why do U.N. troops even bother loading their guns? It's not like they're actually allowed to shoot at anything anyway...
