    Comments by UNIFIL Spokesperson Neeraj Singh on today's incident targeting a UNIFIL logistics convoy


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    27 May 2011 - "According to preliminary reports, there was an explosion late afternoon that targeted a UNIFIL logistics convoy along the main highway near Saida.




    Six UNIFIL peacekeepers were injured in the explosion, one of them seriously and five with moderate injuries. Two civilians who were in the area were also injured.



    This is a despicable act that is clearly directed at undermining UN Security Council resolution 1701 and stability in the south.

    More likely its an attempt to shift attention from Syria's home based problems by getting their Hezzie puppets to target the U.N.I.F.I.L. force.

    excellent pics Smithy but you don't do them justice by not showing them.

    hope you don't mind me displaying them here:









    looking good lads, at least you have some great kit going into this mission instead of playing catch up like we usually do.

    Had a quick look, couldn't find it (its been a long day), thought that might flush out the correct vessel.

    However on this as with many previous occasions GF you just refuse to be flushed.

    What can i say.

    Update, Off the RoRo Berth, Containers now being loaded.
    It seems many of the Logs vehicles are going overseas in their original colour. Is this a new thing?

    Of course, they could have gone for an ivory white or a pearl white...maybe that would have been to your liking ?

    Eggshell, with Rumalian type?

    A subtle off white, that even has a watermark?

    They are going as UN after all. On a peace keeping mission. And Hot Pink is hardly the colour of peace now is it.

    Thanks for the marine tracker link Orion. Seriously cool how you can see what's in your area, and it's previous course.

    TC: On a side note, went for a run today, and all I could think of during was your post saying you were training for a marathon. What possessed you man? Lunacy. When does running that much even begin to be a good idea.

    That might conflict with their sky blue helmets
