إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

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.

"discussions focused on the developments in south Lebanon"
What developments in south Lebanon? There is nothing going on there, only across the internationally recognised border in Israel.

"He reiterated Lebanon’s commitment to UN Resolution 1701"
He completely ignores how many Hizballah terrorists and weapons are south of the Litani River in breach of 1701.

"Aoun reiterated Lebanon’s commitment to UN Resolution 1701 “

What a joke; the laughing stock of the entire world.

Lebanon under the deserter’s tenure went from bad to worse. The country is now officially bankrupt, society corrupt to its core and finally we lost hope for good. Our properties are about to become worthless so are our bank savings. All under Aoun and his clique!

We could say the cancer’s metastasis spread to the brain and bones.

And when the UN shows that they were Kizballah's tunnels what will clown do then? ban kizballah from the golf club? or maybe send them a letter of severe reprimand?
