Diab Requests Urgent Complaint to U.N. Security Council over Israel Attacks on Lebanon
Caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab asked Thursday caretaker Foreign Minister Zeina Akar to request the Representative of Lebanon to the United Nations Ambassador Amal Mudallali to submit “an urgent complaint to the United Nations Security Council regarding the Israeli aggression against Lebanon."
He said in a statement that the Israeli enemy has waged an explicit aggression against the Lebanese sovereignty “with artillery first then with warplanes.”
He added that “Israel has publicly admitted this flagrant violation,” adding that “no party has claimed responsibility” for the rockets fired from Lebanon and that the intentions and timing of rocket fire are “suspicious.”
Diab stressed that this “dangerous aggression is a major threat to peace at Lebanon's southern border” and that “Israel has previously committed a series of violations against Lebanon” and “has used the Lebanese airspace to attack Syria."
He called on the United Nations and the Security Council to “deter Israel from repeating violations against Lebanon,” and from “threatening the stability that has existed since 2006."
