The 85th Ghana Battalion who currently serving in South Lebanon has commemorated Ghana’s 62nd Independence Day with a colourful all women Special Forces parade held at the Battalion Headquarters located in Al-Qawzah, South of Lebanon on Wednesday, March 6.

The Battalion under the command of Lt Col Fiifi Deegbe was deployed on June 30, 2018, as part of the United Nations Interim Force in South Lebanon (UNIFIL) with the mandate to monitor the cessation of hostilities, conduct day and night patrols along the frontier between Lebanon and Israel.

The mandate further includes support to the Lebanese Armed Forces to maintain internal peace and security and provide humanitarian assistance to the civil population among others.

Gracing the occasion, Ghana’s Honourary Consul General to Lebanon, His Excellency Michel Haddad in his address commended the Contingent for their effort in maintaining international peace and unity.

He was full of praise for the professionalism and hard work exhibited by all personnel of GHANBATT 85 and asked them to continue to hold high the flag of Ghana.
Throughout the period of deployment, UNIFIL GHANBATT 85 has undertaken numerous humanitarian activities. These include provision of free medical and dental care to the Lebanese locals, teaching assistance to school children to improve upon quality education and aerobic lessons to improve healthy lifestyle of the locals.

In furtherance of projecting a positive image of Ghana in Lebanon, the GHANBATT Band has put smiles on the faces of the locals through provision of melodious music at festivals.

The Battalion’s engagement with the locals in sports events and effective engagement with the Mayors and Mouktars has further deepened the bi-lateral relationship between Ghana and Lebanon and this has resulted in several mutual cooperation programmes.
The colourful ceremony was graced by personnel from UNIFIL Headquarters, Ghanaians living in Lebanon and some locals and school children living within the operational theatre.

Guests were treated to spectacular drill performances, rich Ghanaian cultural dances, music and food. School children who attended were given amusement rides in the Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) and a bite of Ghana’s rich chocolates.
