Israel violates UNSC resolutions: UNIFIL

Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:43PM GMT

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has accused Israel of regularly violating Security Council resolutions, Press TV has learnt.

Milos Strugar, UNIFIL’s political director, said on Friday that the Israeli army violates Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity on an almost daily basis which is against the UNSC Resolution 1701.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Tel Aviv to respect Beirut’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The UNIFIL official also blamed Israel for refusing to withdraw from all Lebanese territory, including parts of Ghajar village in the south, despite the UNSC resolution.

He added that the UN mission has made several proposals with regards to an Israeli withdrawal from the village.

Strugar said that the violation of Lebanese airspace by Israel not only violates UN resolutions but also undermines the status of UNIFIL, which was established in 1978 to help the Lebanese Government regain sovereignty over the southern border zone, which had been invaded by Israel.

Lebanon’s government and the Hezbollah resistance movement have repeatedly complained of Israeli violations of the country’s airspace.

Tel Aviv claims that the overflights serve surveillance purposes.
