Lebanon files complaint against Israel

Press TV – December 17, 2011

The Lebanese foreign ministry has filed a formal complaint with the United Nations over Israel’s espionage activities in the country, Press TV reports.

Beirut called the Israeli activities a blatant violation of its sovereignty and of UN resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006 and calls on Tel Aviv to respect Beirut’s sovereignty and territorial integrity..

In addition, Israeli activities were described as “a threat to international peace and security” in the complaint, a Press TV correspondent reported on Saturday.

The complaint was filed after Lebanon discovered Israeli spy devices in its southern towns of Deir Kifa and Sirfa earlier in the month.

On December 2, Lebanon’s resistance movement of Hezbollah announced that it had uncovered an attempt by Tel Aviv to infiltrate its telecommunication network.

The Lebanese government, Hezbollah, and UNIFIL have repeatedly cited Israel’s surveillance flights over Lebanon as clear violations of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 and the country’s sovereignty.

Hezbollah has on a number of occasions uncovered Israeli espionage devices in southern Lebanon.
