Lebanese President Aoun: Lebanon Will Defend Itself against ’Israeli’ Aggression
Local Editor

Lebanese President Michel Aoun Monday informed a UN peacekeeping delegation that Lebanon wanted the situation in its south to remain calm but was ready to defend itself against "Israeli" aggression.

Speaking during a meeting with the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix at the Baabda Palace, Aoun pointed out to "Israel's" near-daily violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 and its violation to Lebanon's airspace in order to strike Syria.

A statement from the presidential office said that Aoun also touched on the cement wall that the Zionist entity began building along the "Blue Line."

Aoun denounced before the delegation any attempts for the wall to pass through points that Lebanon has reservations on.

"This is an additional assault on Lebanon's sovereignty that Lebanon rejects," he said.

In further details, Lacroix was accompanied by Acting UNSCOL Pernille Dahler Kardel, UNIFIL commander Maj. Gen. Michael Beary among others.

After the meeting, Lacroix reaffirmed the UN's role as a vehicle for communication and ‘dialogue' between Lebanon and ‘Israel' through the regular tripartite meetings that are mediated by UNIFIL in Naqoura.

Earlier in the day, the president met with Lebanese Army commander General Joseph Aoun at the Army's headquarters in Yarze, discussing the security situation and the Army's needs, an Army statement reported.

He praised the Army's efforts in maintaining stability across Lebanon and "defending the homeland in the face of the "Israeli" enemy and terrorism."

He also affirmed official and public support for the Army's preparedness to guarantee Lebanon's "rights" at the southern border.

These rights include Lebanon's sovereignty over its land and sea borders and its right to exploit its oil and other economic resources, the statement said.
