Lebanon to File Complaint against “Israel” at UN
Lebanon will file a complaint against the Zionist entity at the United Nations Security Council, saying its actions on their shared border were a prelude to an “Israeli” attack, a statement from the Lebanese Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
Caretaker Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said the “Israeli” excavations of what it says are tunnels dug by Hezbollah to infiltrate the occupied territories were a “diplomatic and political campaign against Lebanon in preparation for attacks against it.”
Relatively, Bassil asked Lebanese Ambassador to the UN Amal Mudallali to file a complaint.
In further details, the “Israeli” army announced Thursday that it had expanded its operations to three areas along its border with Lebanon where it claimed it discovered Hezbollah “attack tunnels,” and that it was aware of even more.
The Zionist military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus made the announcement after UNIFIL Commander Maj. Gen. Stefano Del Col visited the site of one of the alleged Hezbollah tunnels that “Israel” claimed it had discovered Tuesday, the day it launched the so-called “Operation Northern Shield” to block them.
Meanwhile, Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and the Lebanese Army refuted Zionist claims, with the Army calling them “mere allegations” and Berri saying they were not based on “any true information or facts at all.”
In the same respect, the state-run National News Agency reported that residents of the southern town of Kfar Kila, opposite the site where the first alleged tunnel was found, received voice recordings on WhatsApp in Arabic originating from the occupied territories, telling them to distance themselves from Hezbollah.
