In this clip Abass discusses the new mandate for UNIFIL (United Nations Security Council resolution 1701 of 2006). He refers to a perceived change in the relationship between the Force and the local community, saying that troops don’t have the same freedom of activity to interact with the local community. He contrasts this by recalling UNIFIL participation in community sports days and donkey derbies in the past.
