Foreign Ministry to File U.N. Complaint against Israel
Caretaker Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil on Wednesday instructed ministry officials to prepare a U.N. Security Council complaint against Israel over its repeated violation of Lebanese sovereignty.
Bassil said Israel carries out around 150 violations every month.
The minister’s move comes a day after Israel said it started an operation to destroy suspected Hizbullah tunnels on Lebanon’s border.
Israel also launched a balloon carrying surveillance cameras on Wednesday towards the Lebanese border town of Mays al-Jabal.
Israeli warplanes and drones meanwhile violate Lebanese airspace on near-daily basis while maritime and territorial violations are also frequent.
