Aoun Condemns Israeli Aggression on Lebanon
Lebanese President Michel Aoun has condemned the airstrikes carried out by the Israeli occupation forces on Lebanon and emphasized the importance of filing a complaint with the United Nations.
The Lebanese Presidency said that the army leadership briefed President Michel Aoun on the results of investigations related to the launch of missiles from Lebanese territory, yesterday, Wednesday, and the measures to be taken in this regard.
Aoun considered that filing the complaint with the UN is an “indispensable” step to deter “Israel” from continuing its attacks on Lebanon.
According to Aoun, "Israel's" deployment of its air force to attack Lebanese villages is the first of its kind since 2006 and reveals retaliatory hostile intentions coinciding with ongoing threats against Lebanon and its sovereignty.
The Lebanese President assured that the incident constitutes a dangerous violation of UN Resolution 1701 and is a direct threat to the security and stability in the south.
Earlier today, Lebanese Caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab called on the UN and the Security Council to deter “Israel”, and to stop its repetitive violations of Lebanon’s sovereignty.
Israeli warplanes raided locations in south Lebanon at midnight on Wednesday, prompting Aoun and Diab's statements.
