Israel has provided maps of minefields it had laid in southern Lebanon, a move that falls in line with the UN cease-fire resolution that ended the Israel-Hizbullah fighting, a UN statement said Monday. A statement issued by the UN Interim Force in Lebanon said the IDF provided the maps to the peacekeepers at a meeting of Lebanese, UNIFIL and Israeli generals at the force's headquarters in the border town of Naqoura. The statement said UNIFIL in turn handed over the maps to the UN Mine Action Coordination Center and the Lebanese army for review. "The Israelis have said this should cover everything," Milos Strugar, senior adviser to the UNIFIL commander, told The Associated Press. But he withheld judgment pending the review.
