Israel Kick Starts Road Rehabilitation along Border with Lebanonإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
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.
Exactly why is this news?
The article states categorically that this work is being carried out on roads close to the border fence, so there is no crossing of the border.
"Bassil had also instructed the Permanent Representative in New York, Ambassador Nawaf Salam, to file two other complaints on Israeli breaches."
When, if ever, will we get to read the same sentence with the word Syrian replacing Israeli?
Since when do "friends" shoot at targets in villages across the border?
When was the last time the "enemy" Israel shot at villages across the border? It was when Hizballah set up rocket sites within those villages and they shot thousands of missiles across the border.
Oh and the Extremest (Tafirs) Muslim who commit atrocities... As a Practicing Muslim I tell you that these evil Takfirs who don't respect the Non Muslims and Behave not any different than the ASSad... well they and Hizbshytan are equal in Evil to me... so they can eat each other....
These Takfirs know very little about islam OR have a sick distorted way of practicing...
For Example... In Islam a Muslim Solder is Forbidden to harm the unarmed (even a solder who surrenders, the traveler the farmer, forbidden to cut down trees, burn homes crops... what do these stupid muslims do they defy the teaching of the Prophet Mohamed (sws). They lack Justice and Humanity So Allah (all mighty) will not help them. Allah Knows Best.
WOW @southern... Seriously you can't read my comments ah?
you write... (...lebcan: if you consider the extremist of al-qaeda and affiliates are muslims brothers, ) What was my comments only 2 minutes prior to you message?
You know what, I'll be fair, I'm just going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say that me and you wrote our responses the sometime as each other...
Ah ya Southern agreed, Israel is the enemy, for sure, one enemy for all I know, but we also have Syria, but in Syria's case, it is an enemy multiplied by ten. It is Regime enemy, FSA enemy, Da3sh enemy, the Al Qaeda affiliated compendium of crazed and drunken Islamists enemy, Syrian refugee enemies, plus the Palestinian luggage enemy, and yes why not, the Lebanese ally enemy. At this stage it would be worth your pertinence to help us figure it out.
Southern, thanks for taking time to respond. Sure enough, there was a time when I considered the Assad regime my worst enemy. Well, after what we have seen what the Islamists are capable of doing, then the regime becomes the lesser of my enemies, I'm sorry Southern, I wish I could give you a more clear-cut answer on this one. My worry remains, what will happen if and when the regime wins the war, would it focus on annexing Lebanon again and impose its atrocious rule again? In the refugees department, I do see a lot of meddling, but the parties you mentioned are not alone in this. All in all? I'd like to see the backs of all refugees, and peace return to Syria, even if a limping Syria for decades to come.
Palestinian Refugees ?
JUNE 8, 1951, Habib Issa, Arab League Sec-Gen., wrote in New York Lebanese daily al-Hoda that in 1948, Azzam Pasha, then League secretary, "assured the Arabs that the occupation would be as simple as a military promenade. Brotherly advice was given to the Arabs to leave their land, homes and property, to stay temporarily in neighbouring fraternal states
APRIL 9, 1953, Jordanian daily al-Urdun - a refugee, Yunes Ahmed Assad, ex of Deir Yassin, "For the flight and fall of the other villages, our leaders are responsible, they disseminated rumours exaggerating Jewish crimes describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs ... instilling fear and terror into our hearts we fled, leaving our homes and property to the enemy."
Sept. 6, 1954 : Another refugee told the Jordanian daily a-Difaa "The Arab governments said, 'Get out so that we can get in.' We got out, they did not get in."
Feb. 19, 1949: Jordanian daily Falastin : "The Arab states... encouraged the Arabs to leave their homes temporarily to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies."
So who exactly forced them out?
so voting thumbs down shows that you don't even believe what the Arab press was telling you over 60 years ago, well before Hizballah, PLO, Hamas and all the other terrorist organisations.
If you don't believe the Arab press who do you believe?
