Israel to UN: take action against Hezbollah over admission of Shebaa attack

Share:

israel hezbollah flagsIsrael has asked the United Nations to take action against Hezbollah after the party’s secretary-general, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said that his group was behind a blast that targeted Israeli troops last month.

Israel’s U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor said in a letter to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council that Nasrallah’s admission is further evidence that Hezbollah continues to operate south of the Litani River in violation of Resolution 1701 that ended the 2006 war between the two sides.

“Yes, the explosion in the Shebaa Farms that Hezbollah has not claimed until now was the work of the resistance, which means the work of Hezbollah,” Nasrallah told As Safir daily earlier this week.

The explosion on March 14 came around a month after Israeli warplanes carried out air strikes in the Lebanese-Syrian border area of Janta that were believed to have targeted its positions.

“This was not the reply, but this was part of the reply,” Nasrallah said.

Tensions have been running high between Israel and Hezbollah for months, with the Jewish state warning it would carry out strikes to prevent the group from obtaining advanced weaponry.

    Take action as in what? Write them a letter?
    Fine, here’s the title and the letter: “We condemn all escalation from all sides on the blue line.” Now time for my lunch break, see ya!

      Right. They ignore all the letters from Lebanon too – because neither side respects that line.
      Why would Isreal expect more?

      Why would Isreal expect more? Fatheads-north take shots at Fatheads-south, the south retaliates, and it goes on ‘ad ininitum’ … a tradition as old as the hills.
      All the historians HERE would agree on the importance of ‘traditions’. :-)))

    Since when does Israel write a letter?? They always break the laws when they invade Lebanon’s airspace. NOT that I’m defending Hezbollah.

    1. Since Hezbollah is not a sovereign nation but Lebanon is. Hezbollah uses this as a cover to get away with things that it does from Lebanon.

  4. First, “Israel” should prove that it respects the global community by following UN Resolution 242. Second, the jewish squatters should withdraw from occupied Lebanese territory. Then there will be equal-footing and an opportunity for negotiation – that the jews may walk to plank into the Mediterranean!

  6. Why doesn’t the mighty IsraHELL take its own action. Surely a country who has threatened to attack Iran on numerous occasions isn’t scared of little old Hezbollah.

  8. There’s a new Christian right wing militant radical group that supports Hezbollah in the U.S. It’s called “His Bullet” and they are radically anti-Zionist. They are currently training to go to Syria to help Hezbollah and Assad. However, their main goal is to liberate Palestine from the Zionists which they plan to do with Hezbollah after Assad wins in Syria.

    1. If they are coming to help Hezbollah then they will be considered as brothers and will be treated accordingly. Although the Christians in Lebanon have proven time and time again that can handle any outside threat, an alliance with Hezbollah is a must for them to ensure these terrorist pigs don’t turn Lebanon into Saudi Arabia or the like. It’s time for them to wake up and really see what Hezbollah is trying to acheive.

        Sometimes it’s hard to see … beating people into submission is not always the best way.

        1. The only ones being beated are the ones who deserve a beating 5th.
