UN Security Council Resolution 794 is unanimously passed, approving a coalition of United Nations peacekeepers led by the United States to form UNITAF, with the task of establishing peace and ensuring that humanitarian aid is distributed in Somalia.
Unified Task Force (UNITAF) was a United States-led, United Nations-sanctioned multinational force which operated in Somalia between Dec. 5, 1992 through May 4, 1993. UNITAF was named Operation Restore Hope by the US and EUCOM designated as the lead agency.
EUCOM was charged with carrying out United Nations Security Council Resolution 794: to create a protected environment for conducting humanitarian operations in the southern half of Somalia.
UNITAF's original mandate was to use "all necessary means" to guarantee the delivery of humanitarian aid in accordance to Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter and is regarded as a success.
