Lebanon: Israel continues to build wall as Beirut files complaint to UNSC

Israeli forces appeared to continue building a nine-metre (30-ft) high wall along the northern border with Lebanon, as seen in footage filmed near Adaisseh on Sunday. Footage shows a crane installing cement blocks and some construction equipment digging along the fence. Lebanese soldiers and personnel of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) were also seen on site. According to Israeli... Еще military officials, the barrier will stretch from the Mediterranean Sea in the west to the area around Mount Hermon in the east. The wall will reportedly be equipped with steel mesh, surveillance cameras and sensors. Lebanon has repeatedly slammed the operation, calling it an intrusion of its territory and an act of aggression, accusing Israel of threatening border stability. However, Israeli officials stated that the wall runs entirely on its side of the UN-recognised border. Lebanon claimed that on Thursday, Israel had allegedly placed cement blocks in the disputed area, opposite Lebanon's southern village of Adaisseh. On Sunday, Lebanon's Permanent Representative to the UN Amal Mudallali filed a complaint with the UN Security Council (UNSC) over Israel's construction of the border wall, arguing that Israel encroached on several disputed points along the Blue Line. Mudallali also accused Israel of violating the UN Resolution 1701, which was passed in 2006 to resolve the Israel-Lebanon conflict.
