Israeli envoy to UN: Border with Lebanon is constantly breached
The official border between Israel and Lebanon was breached 589 times in 2015, according to a report that Israeli Ambassador the U.N. Danny Danon submitted to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon over the weekend.
Danon’s report noted there were 2,374 violations last year of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which had brought the 2006 Second Lebanon War to an end. These violations included two cases in which the Lebanese Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah attacked Israel.
Danon told Ban and the U.N. Security Council that the Lebanese government was doing nothing to prevent Hezbollah activities in southern Lebanon prohibited by Resolution 1701.
