United Nations Security Council resolution 519, adopted on 17 August 1982, after recalling previous resolutions on the topic and studying the report by the Secretary-General on the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), the Council noted the situation between Israel and Lebanon warranted an extension of UNIFIL, until 19 October 1982.

The Council then authorised UNIFIL to carry out humanitarian tasks in addition to its usual mandate, and supported the Secretary-General and observers from the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization in their roles.

The resolution was adopted by 13 votes to none, while the People's Republic of Poland and Soviet Union abstained from voting.
