Lebanese government to file UN complaint against Israel for violations of airspace and territory

Lebanon’s caretaker Prime Minister, Hassan Diab, has on Friday asked the Foreign Ministry to file a United Nations complaint against the Zionist occupation entity, for launching warplanes targeting Syrian territory from within Lebanese airspace.

The Presidency of the Lebanese Council of Ministers said in a statement that Diab asked the acting Foreign Minister, Zina Aker, to instruct Lebanon’s delegate to the United Nations “to file an urgent complaint against the Zionist entity, which has violated Lebanese sovereignty, endangered the safety of civil aviation and directly threatened the lives of civilian passengers, both Lebanese and foreign.”

Diab stressed that the Zionist enemy’s continued violation of Lebanon’s sovereignty constitutes a direct threat to UN Resolution 1701.

He called on the United Nations and the international community to condemn the aggression of the entity, and to take measures that preserve Lebanese sovereignty and protect resolution 1701.

Syrian military sources announced that “the Zionist enemy carried out, at approximately 23.03 PM on Thursday, an aerial aggression with rockets from a direction southeast of Beirut, targeting some points in the vicinity of the cities of Damascus and Homs.”
