Lebanon files UN complaints against Israel
Lebanon filed two complaints on Thursday to the United Nations Security Council against Israel, Xinhua reported with the reference to the country's state-own National News Agency.
The Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed the first complaint over an Israeli patrol's move on Jan. 17 to set up a fence in the northern part of the Ghajar village, south Lebanon.
The report said the second complaint is about an Israeli unit's actions on Jan. 28, when the patrol approached the border near the Fatima Gate on the border and cursed members of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and videotaped the LAF's checkpoint in the area.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry said the work of Israeli troops along the border is a clear violation of Lebanese sovereignty and UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the 34-day conflict between Israel and Lebanese Shiite armed group Hezbollah in August 2006, and mandated UN peacekeeping forces to operate in south Lebanon.
