إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanon filed a complaint with the U.N. against Israel for erecting a barbed wire near the U.N.-drawn Blue Line in the town of Adaisseh, the foreign ministry announced on Friday.

The ministry said in a statement that the incident took place on Feb. 8 when Israeli forces “erected a 40-meter concertina wire near the Blue Line in the town of Adaisseh to block the road leading to the Blue Line and that crosses into a minefield.”

The complaint, which was submitted to the world body through the Lebanese mission in New York, described the Israeli move as “an infringement on Lebanese territories as well as a violation of Lebanese sovereignty, Security Council Resolution 1701, international law and the Charter of the U.N.”

It also said that the erection of the barbed wire “threatens international peace and security.”

Lebanon asked U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to take the necessary measures to end the Israeli violation, the statement added.

The Blue Line is the U.N.-drawn border between the two countries established in 2000. Both Lebanon and Israel have challenged its accuracy in several locations.

Such a non-event... there are thousands of reports, such as this one, piled up at the UN. Nothing will be done...

They informed the UN forces what they were trying to do in Feb 8th and it was all over the news, I am sure the UN forces relayed the news to the Government, if the latter objected then the Army or UN should have sent warning shot at the bulldozers to back off. This story is like the thief called you a day in advance to tell you I am coming to your house tomorrow, you would be so dumb if you are not prepared the next day.
