Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti asserted Lebanon’s right to defend itself against any Israeli aggression, confirming Lebanon’s commitment to Security Council Resolution 1701.

In exclusive statements to Sky News, the Lebanese Foreign Minister considered that the deployment of the Israeli Army’s anti-missile batteries and artillery on the Israeli borders bordering Lebanon is “unjustified.”

The Minister stressed his country’s adherence to the presence of UNIFIL forces and its commitment to Security Council Resolution 1701 regarding the maintenance of peace and security in southern Lebanon, and his country’s adherence to security and the Blue Line and the right of Lebanon to defend itself “against any aggression.”

In conjunction with the statements of the Lebanese minister, the Lebanese-Israeli border witnessed severe tension in the last hours, prompting gunfire and artillery shells to be launched in the occupied Sheba’a Farms region.

In turn, the Lebanese National News Agency confirmed that an Israeli artillery bombardment targeted the mountainous region of Jabal Al-Sheikh, specifically in the eastern highlands of the town of Kafr Shuba, and the area around Ruwaysat al-Alam.

He’s fücking kidding : 2006 UNSC Res.1701 ORDERS the disarmament of all Lebanese militias, there is no waiver for Hezbo. 14 years later, these are much better armed than in 2006. Lebanon is sheerly welcoming any terrorist or militia willing to attack Israel from its southern border for close to 50 years and speaks about Israeli aggression? C’mon!

They should read Hague Convention: attacks by proxies or direct attacks are the same thing! How pitiful the Middle-East where aggressors and terrorists pose as being victims. They rally have no honour.
