UNIFIL announces death of Spanish soldier

UNIFIL Spanish Contingent soldier was found dead at the “Miguel de Cervantes” Base in the area of Ibl al-Saqi in the South of Lebanon, on Sunday (June 26).

“The body was found by the soldier’s comrades in the morning and investigations have revealed that he committed suicide,” NNA said.

“Preparations for transferring the body to Spain have started,” it added.

UNIFIL has more than 10,000 military personnel from 40 countries and around 1,000 civilian national and international staff.

The force was created in 1978 to help Lebanon restore government control over southern Lebanon after the Israeli invasion, and it was beefed up in 2006 after the devastating war between Israel and Hizbullah.
