Over 200 Irish troops from the 120th Infantry Battalion, United Nations Interim Force Lebanon (UNIFIL) returned to Dublin Airport on Thursday 24th November, following a six-month deployment to South Lebanon. The personnel were met by their families and friends. Drawn from many different Units across the Army and Air Corps, the majority of the 120th Infantry Battalions personnel are drawn from the 27th Infantry Battalion based in Aiken Barracks, Dundalk, Co Louth.
