South Korea will send 350 peacekeepers to Lebanon in July, the Defense Ministry said Thursday, as part of international efforts to oversee a cease-fire between Israel and militant group Hezbollah. The mission of the South Korean troops, who are set to be deployed July 19, include "monitoring and reconnaissance in responsible areas" in the southern Lebanon city of Tyre near the border with Israel, the ministry said in a report to the legislature. South Korean troops will also help train Lebanese soldiers, the ministry said, adding that Seoul has started shipping vehicles, containers and other equipment to the areas.
