Lebanon to Lodge Complaint with UNSC against “Israeli”
Lebanon said it will file a complaint with the UN Security Council against the “Israeli” occupation regime’s violation of a number of points contested by Beirut, especially a wall it has built near the Lebanese border.
In further details, Lebanese officials said Thursday they would raise the issue of the wall with the United Nations Security Council and a top US diplomat.
The comments came after Tel Aviv placed 25 cement blocks near the illegal “Israeli” settlement of Miskaf Aam, opposite the Lebanese town of Adaisseh, with six blocks placed on disputed points.
In response, the Lebanese Army deployed reinforcements to the area.
“What happened today is dangerous and could spark a security incident,” a political source told Lebanon’s The Daily Star.
The blocks had been placed “without informing UNIFIL [United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon],” a Lebanese Army statement said.
