Beirut - Over 250 demining experts went to work in the eastern sector of south Lebanon on Monday to clear an estimated 18,000 mines spanning over 610,000 kms. The task force, working under the UAE-financed Operation Emirates Solidarity (OES) run by the UN, will rid areas including Marjaiyoun, Qalia and Balat, from mines sown by Israel during a 22-year-long occupation. OES began in late 2001 focused on locating those clusters of mines, and beginning the logistical preparations for uprooting them. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
