UN needs more troops in Lebanon from European countries

UN is pressing for more troops from European countries for peacekeeping in Lebanon. France has accepted to send 200 additional troops and is expected to send more than 200 troops. Germany has shown its inability to send troops for peacekeeping, as they fear conflict with Israeli soldiers. Finland will be sending somewhere around 250 troops in November. Even Italy has confirmed some troops but exact count is known.

Two Asia countries Indonesia & Malaysia has offered 1000 troops each. But this proposal is not acceptable to Israel. According to Israel, Both Indonesia & Malaysia haven’t recognized Israel as a sovereign state.
