BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – Lebanon lodged a formal complaint to the United Nations this week, following Israel’s use of Lebanese airspace to attack Syria’s Homs Governorate.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants has filed a complaint before the UN Security Council in New York over the dangerous Israeli violation of Lebanese sovereignty, after three Israeli aircraft bombed Syrian sites from the Lebanese airspace, which represented a threat to Lebanese civilians,” the ministry said in a statement released on Thursday.

“This violation comes at a time when the entire world is facing the threat of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic,” it added.

The Lebanese foreign ministry then urged the Security Council to “put a permanent end to the Israeli violations,” noting that “Israel violates the Lebanese aerial, maritime and territorial sovereignty on a daily basis.”

Israel often violates Lebanese airspace with their fighter and reconnaissance aircraft, despite complaints from the Lebanese authorities about the violation of the small Levantine country’s territorial integrity.

Well, obviously, the world is facing the threat of being distracted by the normal spread of a virus that is within the normals range of imfluenza-like viruses. The morbidity and mortality rates this year are actually low. So stop being riduculous. The real problems persist: Warmongering, escalation, re-shuffling of wealth from the people to financial institutions etc.

Both Egypt and Jordan have stopped to behave that stupid and how funny, they don’t end with such issues. BTW, when will Lebanon enforce UNSC Res.1701 which orders the disarmament of ALL Lebanese militias, and not all but one : there is no waiver for Hezbollah. There is no reason for UN to listen to such complaint while Lebanon… Read more »
