UNSCOL (Lebanon): Maintaining stability in Lebanon

Derek Plumbly took the post of United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon in February 2012 at a challenging time, as the war in neighbouring Syria began to increasingly affect Lebanon. As head of the office of the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL) and in conjunction with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), he engaged with all parties to support the cessation of hostilities between Lebanon and Israel, in line with Security Council Resolution 1701 (2006). The situation in the south of the country remained relatively calm. Lebanon’s borders with Syria, however, saw an increase in crossborder violence, the smuggling of people and weapons and a growing flow of Syrian refugees fleeing the violence in their country.
