Beirut, April 8 (Xinhua) –At the request of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), the 20th Chinese peacekeeping construction and Engineering detachment to Lebanon sent a crane operation group to assist the Irish Polish peacekeeping detachment to complete the hoisting of a concrete air defense bunker on Thursday.Lebanon is hot and intense during the day.Upon receiving the mission, the Chinese peacekeeping construction and engineering detachment to Lebanon immediately dispatched elite construction forces to inspect the construction area twice, fully assessed the security risks in the construction area and carefully studied the construction plan.The concrete air raid shelters, weighing 14 tonnes, were installed at seven sites in the Polish battalion in Ireland.During the hoisting, the commander and operator worked closely together to overcome the difficulties of narrow working space, poor lifting balance and high technical requirements, and accurately transferred the concrete air raid shelter to the designated location through standard operating procedures.”Lifting needs to face the test of physical strength and eyesight. You are very professional and careful.Well done, very high standard!”Kumar Gupta, Director of works at UNIFIL Command, said after the completion of the construction.Since its deployment in August last year, the 20th Chinese peacekeeping construction and engineering detachment to Lebanon has completed 29 annual construction tasks, including the construction of armored vehicle shelters, and 19 temporary tasks to a high standard, winning praise from UNIFIL officials, friendly peacekeeping forces and local people.
