Lebanon urges end to Israel violations

The Lebanese military has called for an end to the violation of the country's territorial integrity by the Israeli regime.

The call was made during a Monday meeting of military officials from Lebanon, Israel and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) in the southern Lebanese city of Naqoura about the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon.

"The Lebanese delegation presented a list of Israeli violations by air, ground, and sea, demanding that they halt immediately," the Lebanese Army said in a statement.

"The Lebanese delegation stressed the need to resolve incidents in the field, even if they are simple, in order to prevent them from developing and causing larger incidents," the statement read.

Tel Aviv launched wars on Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. About 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, were killed in the 33-Day War of 2006. On both occasions, however, Hezbollah fighters defeated the Israeli forces and Tel Aviv was forced to retreat without achieving any of its objectives.
