BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – On Wednesday, the UNIFIL forces in Lebanon held a tripartite meeting between the Lebanese and Israeli delegations in the town of Ras Naqoura along the border.

“This morning, a tripartite meeting was held in Ras al-Naqoura under the leadership of the Commander of the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon, Major General Del Col Stefano, and the presence of a delegation of the Lebanese Army officers headed by the Coordinator of the Lebanese Government to the United Nations Forces, pilot Amin Farhat,” the Lebanese Army command said.

“The Lebanese side underlined the position of the Lebanese government, which is adhering to Lebanon’s sovereignty over its territory, sea water and oil wealth, and rejecting the Israeli air, sea and land violations and repeated provocations,” they continued.

Lebanese renewed their demand that Israel immediately withdrawal from the occupied Sheba’a Farms, Kafr Shuba Hills, and town of Ghajar.

In response to Israel’s claims of Hezbollah tunnels along the border, the Lebanese Army command said that these were “mere allegations.”

“The Lebanese side deemed the enemy’s claims regarding the existence of tunnels at the southern border mere allegations, asking for accurate information and coordinates of the places claimed by the Israeli enemy as containing tunnels,” the Lebanese Army command said.

“The Lebanese side affirmed Lebanon’s commitment to Resolution 1701 and its internationally recognized borders, calling for the implementation of UN resolution 13 / L73, which demanded that the Israeli enemy pay the dues resulting from its aggression on the oil facility in Jiyeh back in 2006, And called on the international community and the United Nations to pressure the Israeli enemy to implement said resolution,” they added.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
