This Mission was established in March 1978 to confirm the withdrawal of Israeli forces from southern Lebanon, to restore international peace and security, and to assist the Government of Lebanon in ensuring the return of its effective authority in the area. The Mission continues to the present date.

The ribbon bears three equal bands of UN colour: blue, green and UN blue. The bands are separated by two equal sized white stripes, each bisected by a narrow red line. The colours represent the UN and Lebanese flags. The qualifying period of service to earn the medal is 90 days of service in the Mission.

The following countries have provided troops to this Mission: Canada, Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Senegal and Sweden. Those Military Observers from Fiji, Ghana, and Nepal assigned to UNIFIL as parent mission, and then detached for service with UNGOMAP, are also eligible, after 90 days of service, for the UNIFIL medal bearing a clasp indicating service with UNGOMAP.
