Seems like it's World Cup 2006 Final all over again, is France or Italy to the leadership of the UNIFIL. Just wait and see, the results will be out soon, let's hope they don't get to the penalty shoot, Lebanon already had a big penalty over its head.
What changed? France wants to send 2000 men to enhance UNIFIL, Spain wants to send between 1000 and 1200 men, and Poland up to 500. Dost Blazi says that the European participation in UNIFIL forces might reach 7000. 
Things seem to be catching up to a certain extent, possibly a private agreement far from public has been settled which caused the whole excitement about UNIFIL, and possibly with it Israel might end their aerial and maritime blockade, thus the airport will open completely.
