President Michel Aoun received on Tuesday the UNIFIL commander, Maj. Gen. Stefano Del Col in Baabda where discussions focused on the developments in south Lebanon following Israel’s intention to launch Operation Northern Shield to demolish alleged Hizbullah tunnels, the National News Agency reported on Tuesday.
The President announced that “Lebanon will wait for the results of field investigations following Israeli claims that Hizbullah has dug tunnels into Israel,” NNA said.
He reiterated Lebanon’s commitment to UN Resolution 1701 “out of keenness to preserve security and stability in South Lebanon,” said NNA.
Israel's military chief has met with the head of the U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon on Monday to discuss the discovery of alleged tunnels.
Israel launched an operation -- dubbed Northern Shield -- aimed at destroying alleged Hizbullah "attack tunnels" infiltrating its territory from Lebanon.
Israeli military said an army delegation will head to Moscow on Tuesday to brief their Russian counterparts on operations to destroy said tunnels from Lebanon.
