The UNIFIL are in Lebanon with a mandate to ... err ... protect themselves.

Or so it says in the ABC online article UNIFIL sets rules of engagement in Lebanon:

Their mandate is "to protect UN personnel, facilities, installations and equipment; to ensure the security and freedom of movement of UN personnel and humanitarian workers; and to protect civilians under imminent threat of physical violence in its areas of deployment, within its capabilities".
Cool. So that's UN Security Council Resolution 1701 implemented then.

Hang on. There was something else in UN SCR 1701 about disarming Hizballah, no?
