NNA – The Italian contingent operating within the framework of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon and the UNIFIL Civil Affairs Office, in partnership with the Naqoura Municipality, launched several vital projects, including a pump for the artesian well and a 100 KVA generator, in addition to a protection fence for the well site in the town of Naqoura, in the presence of the Chief of Staff at UNIFIL’s Western Sector Command, Colonel Rafael Oranno, representing General Stefano Lagorio, and Mayor Abbas Awada representing the Al-Mansouri Site Commander, and a number of Municipal Council members in Naqoura, Italian officers and prominent dignitaries from the region.
