More Maritime Merriment

Check here for more on the "more".

Correction: UNIFIL naval assets operate up both outside and inside Lebanese territorial waters. Lebanon's territorial waters are defined as a 12 nautical kilometers-wide band running parallel to the Lebanese coast. UNIFIL vessels operate outside that band but also within it, at a distance of 7-12 nautical kilometers from the Lebanese coast. The Lebanese Navy patrols the remaining area from the coast to up to 6 nautical kilometers from it.
