Hariri Asks FM to Prepare U.N. Complaint over Israel Threats
Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Monday asked Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil to prepare a U.N. complaint over Israel's latest threats against Lebanon.
“The repeated threats that are being voiced by Israeli government officials and in the media against Lebanon's civilians and their legitimate institutions and infrastructure are aimed at covering up for Israel's constant violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, to which Lebanon is committed,” Hariri said at the beginning of a cabinet session.
“Lebanon has always called for the implementation of UNSCR 1701 and all its stipulations,” Hariri added.
“I call on the foreign minister to document these official Israeli stances that have been declared through the media in order to prepare a detailed letter about them to the U.N. Security Council so that the international community shoulders its responsibility towards this premeditated stirring of tensions and this blatant threat to regional stability,” the PM went on to say.
