The UN Security Council condemned the death of a Spanish peacekeeper on the Lebanon border on Wednesday, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he "deeply regrets" the Spanish soldier's death. Ban called on all to exercise maximum calm and restraint.
Spain's UN Ambassador Romain Oyarzun Marchesi said Spain, a member of the Security Council, wants a full investigation into events. When asked which side the fire came from that killed the peacekeeper, he told reporters: "It was because of an escalation of violence and it came from the Israeli side."
Prosor said: "Events in the north continue to unfold and Israel extends its condolences to UNIFIL and the Spanish government over the death of one of its soldiers earlier today."
