Israeli Ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman expressed great satisfaction on Tuesday night with the UNIFIL's rules of engagement in southern Lebanon which gives its troops permission to use force in order to prevent clashes in the region. "It now becomes an effective force that can open fire, not merely give out parking tickets," said Gillerman, adding that the move was the "first step" towards disarming Hizbullah in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolution 1559.
