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."

Rockets were fired from Lebanon into Israel. Israel retaliates in kind.... Aoun and Diab are outraged and want to file a complaint with the Security Council.

The audacity!!!!!

Wrong. Israel started it. Israel bombs Hezbollah and Syria every few days in Syria. This is simply a retaliation by them.

"انتهاك فاضح"... عون: هناك نوايا عدوانية تصعيدية!

إطّلع رئيس الجمهورية العماد ميشال عون من قيادة الجيش على نتائج التحقيقات المتعلقة بعملية اطلاق صواريخ من الاراضي اللبنانية التي حصلت أمس والاجراءات الواجب اتخاذها في هذا الشأن، واعتبر انّ تقديم الشكوى الى الأمم المتحدة خطوة لا بد منها لردع اسرائيل عن استمرار اعتداءاتها على لبنان.

وقال عون: "استخدام اسرائيل لسلاحها الجوي في استهداف قرى لبنانية هو الاول من نوعه منذ 2006 ويؤشر الى وجود نوايا عدوانية تصعيدية تتزامن مع التهديدات المتواصلة ضد لبنان وسيادته، وما حصل هو انتهاك فاضح وخطير لقرار مجلس الأمن الرقم 1701 وتهديد مباشر للأمن والاستقرار في الجنوب".

“no party has claimed responsibility” for the rockets fired from Lebanon.
Nol party needs to, it is the responsibility of the Government of Lebanon to prevent these agressive terrorist acts.

Writing ignorant and distorted comments is your speciality and I certainly wouldn't want to challenge you on that. If it were an Olympic sport, you would win by a mile.
