The Blue Line
UNIFIL troups at the Lebanon-Israel border
The Blue Line is the ›Line of Withdrawal‹ beyond which Israeli forces are obliged to withdraw from Lebanon in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 425. It is not an international border. It is a practical point of reference to enable UNIFIL-troups to veryfy the Israeli withdrawal. Most areas along the Blue Line are heavily mined and no one from any side is allowed to cross it.
