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.
