WorthyNews: Israel to protest Hezbollah tunnels as violation of U.N. resolution

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - Israel will submit a protest to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the president of the Security Council, which this month is held by Cote d'Ivoire, against aggressive actions emanating from Lebanon, the Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday, soon after the IDF operation to destroy Hezbollah terror tunnels began.

The ministry has also instructed its representatives abroad to stress that the digging of these tunnels constitutes an aggressive action, is a clear violation of Israeli sovereignty, and an additional violation of Security Council resolutions 1559 and 1701.

Resolution 1559, passed in 2004, called for all foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon and for the “disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias.”

And resolution 1701, which put an end to the Second Lebanon War in 2006, called upon the government of Lebanon to assert its authority and control throughout the country, in respect of the international boundary between Israel and Lebanon – and for UNIFIL to do what it must to ensure that southern Lebanon is not utilized for hostile activities.
