13:29, July 18, 2013

BEIRUT, July 17 (Xinhua) -- Nepal has approved the transfer of some of its troops operating with the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to join the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the occupied Golan Heights, a UNIFIL spokesperson said Wednesday.

Antoinette Midday told the state-run National News Agency that "due to the urgent need, the Nepalese government has decided to withdraw one of its units working with the UNIFIL and send it for deployment with the UNDOF."

Meanwhile, Midday said the Nepalese government would provide a replacement for the unit in September.

"The temporary shortage will be compensated by the reserve units working in the area of operations of the UNIFIL's Nepalese forces until September when the Nepalese government will provide the replacement," she added.

The Nepalese contingent working with the UNIFIL is composed of 850 soldiers and its area of operations extends all along the east sector of southern Lebanon.
