International peacekeeping military unit of Armenia joined the UN forces for peace in Lebanon 2 weeks ago and now they already started the service. Armenian unit is very small, about 30 people.


Armenian soldiers will serve with the Italian armed forces and be under the command of the Italian general. All the soldiers are professionals and especially trained for serving in foreign and bad conditions.

It is the fourth country that Armenia sends a peacekeeping unit. Till 2008 there was one in Iraq, and there are still soldiers in Kosovo and Afghanistan.
