The report was providedconsistent with” but did not cite any specific provision of the War Powers Resolution.

Lebanon some 350,000 Palestinians are registered with UNRWA, representing about 12 per cent of that country’s total population. More than half of these refugees live in 12 camps. Palestinians in Lebanon face particular hardships. Strict controls on the expansion of camp boundaries and building in the camps have led to severe over-crowding and deteriorating camp infrastructure, and have forced some 32,000 Palestinians into 14 unserved squatter settlements on the periphery of the camps. The Palestinian refugees do not have access to government services and therefore rely entirely on UNRWA, UNICEF and philanthropic associations for health care, schooling and other basic services. UNRWA records define 10 per cent of the registered Palestinian population, representing some 9,000 families, as “special hardshipcases. Most of these extremely poor families are headed by divorced or widowed women, who are predominantly illiterate, unemployed and lack a regular income. Children from such families are often withdrawn from school so they can help supplement the family income. Recent surveys undertaken by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) in 1998 revealed that more than half the working children 10 to 14 years of age were illiterate.

Lebanon. The fragility of the truce in South Lebanon was again strikingly illustrated by isolated rockets fired into Israeli territory, counter-fire launched by the Israeli army, regular violation of Lebanese airspace by the Israeli air force and other incidents. This fragile situation reached its tragic climax on 3 August 2010, which saw the heaviest fighting between the Israeli and Lebanese armies since 2006, claiming lives and casualties on both sides. Against this back- ground, the UNSC called upon both parties to show the utmost restraint and observe the truce (remarks by the UNSC Presidency to the press). These events had once again illustrated that a permanent peace between Israel and Lebanon as well as a comprehensive solution to the Middle East conflict are indispensible to the stability and sustainable development of the entire region.All in all, the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), succeeded in largely maintaining the tense calm South of the Litani River. UNIFIL was, however, faced with restrictions in its freedom of movement – which was repeatedly condemned by Austria. In general, Austria also regularly called for guaran- teeing the safety and security of UN personnel. In the aftermath of clashes with groups of protesting civilians during and after a major UNIFIL manoeu- vre at the end of June 2009, the UNSC issued a Press Statement on 9 July 2009 (SC/9976) in which it condemned these incidents and called on all parties to ensure the safety and freedom of movement of UN peacekeepers.In the UNSC’s deliberations on Lebanon, Austria advocated an end to the violation of Lebanese airspace by Israeli overflights, the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Ghajar and the Sheeba Farms in South Lebanon as well as the disarmament of Hezbollah and Palestinian militia in the UNRWA refugee camps in Lebanon. In the light of constant reports on arms smuggling into South Lebanon, Austria called for the strict observance of the arms embargo. The mandate of UNIFIL was unanimously extended under SC resolutions1884 (2009) and 1937 (2010) by one year each, most recently until 31 August‌‌2011.The Special Envoy for the Implementation of Security Council Resolution 1559 (2004), Terje Rød Larsen, informed the UNSC on two occasions about relevant developments. SC resolution 1559 calls for the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Lebanon and the disarmament and disbanding of all militia active in Lebanon and pledges to support the Lebanese government in extending its control ove...
