Israel Kick Starts Road Rehabilitation along Border with Lebanon

The Israeli army kicked off a project to rehabilitate roads near the barbed wire along the border with southern Lebanon.

According to the state-run National News Agency, rail road excavators and bulldozers accompanied by 3 armored vehicles and around 20 soldiers began at 9:00 am paving roads adjacent to the southern towns of Adaisseh and Kfarkila.

Israeli helicopters also flew over the occupied Shebaa Farms and the Golan heights and nearby areas.

As drone surveyed Shebaa and the adjacent Arqoub villages.

On Saturday, Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil instructed the permanent Mission of Lebanon to the United Nations in New York to file an urgent complaint to the U.N. Security Council on Israel's “blatant” security breaches against Lebanon's sovereignty as per outgoing President Michel Suleiman's request.

Israeli forces crossed on May 11 the Blue Line in the al-Labbouneh border area, uprooted trees and lifted cement blocks that belong to the Lebanese army.

The Israeli navy later violated Lebanese territorial waters off Ras al-Naqoura, pushing a line of buoys 20 meters into Lebanese territorial waters.

Bassil had also instructed the Permanent Representative in New York, Ambassador Nawaf Salam, to file two other complaints on Israeli breaches.

Lebanon's southern border has continuously witnessed violations carried out by Israel.

Israel routinely sends F-16 fighter planes over Lebanon, in violation of Security Council resolution 1701 that ended the 2006 war.
