Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon Thursday urged the U.N. Security Council to take tougher steps to curb the Hezbollah terror group’s operations along the Israel-Lebanon border.
“Hezbollah continues to violate Security Council resolutions,” Danon wrote in a letter to the Security Council ahead of the body’s upcoming debate on Resolution 1701, which prohibits Hezbollah from operating along the border. “They’re expanding their arsenal and seeking to destabilize the entire region.”
Danon added that he had sent the Security Council a report detailing 421 Hezbollah violations of Resolution 1701 in the past two months alone.
“The international community must not allow this to continue, and the Security Council must confront this threat head on to ensure that 1701 is enforced,” Danon said.
Last month, the IDF released a video of Hezbollah operating several outposts along the Israel-Lebanon border to spy on the Jewish state under the guise of a fake environmental organization known as “Green Without Borders.” At the time, Danon wrote a letter to the president of the U.N. Security Council stating that Hezbollah’s actions violate Security Council Resolutions 1701 and 1559.
