In United Nations Security Council resolution 444, adopted on 19 January 1979, after recalling resolutions 425 (1978), 426 (1978), 427 (1978) and 434 (1978), and considering the report from the Secretary-General on the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), the Council expressed its concern at the situation in Southern Lebanon and noted that UNIFIL had been unable to complete tasks at the end of its second mandate.
The Council went on to condemn the lack of cooperation from Lebanon and particularly Israel with UNIFIL regarding the implementation of its mandate. Resolution 444 also commended the Government of Lebanon for its attempts to re-establish authority in Southern Lebanon.
By extending the mandate of the Force until 19 June 1979, the resolution asked UNIFIL, in conjunction with the Secretary-General, to help restore order and authority in the region, including the full implementation of Resolution 425.
