Lebanon sues Israel over border Violations

Beirut, Lebanon

Lebanon set to file a complaint with the United Nations Security Council against the “Israeli occupation” of the northern part of Gajar, a disputed village bordering the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry instructed the country’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations to file a complaint over “the complete Israeli occupation and annexation of the Lebanese part of Ghajar,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement added that Israel’s recent move in Ghajar escalates Israel’s daily and continuous violation of Lebanese sovereignty and UN Resolution 1701, which called for “Israel’s immediate and unconditional withdrawal from all occupied Lebanese territories”. Is.

Lebanon accused Israel of erecting barbed wire fences and building a cement wall around Gajar, Xinhua news agency reported.

Israel was required to withdraw from the northern half of Gaza under a UN Security Council resolution that ended the 2006 war between Israel and the Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah in Lebanon, although this has not yet happened.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon has for years called on Israel to stop its construction work in northern Gaza and to withdraw its troops.
Apart from occasional tensions in recent months, the Lebanese–Israeli border has been largely calm since a month-long war in 2006.
