Israel has violated Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity over 3,000 times in 2012 in blatant violation of UN Security Council resolution, Press TV reports. In the year 2012, Israel has approximately violated Lebanon’s sovereignty 3,400 times through air, water and ground. The UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The most frequent breaches of Israel are overflights by Israeli war planes and drones to Lebanese skies. Following Israel’s 2006 attack on Lebanon, the total number of violations exceeded 20,000, which is an average of more than nine violations per day.
Lebanon has filed numerous complaints to the United Nations, presenting documents pertaining to Israeli violations. But Israel continues its violation of Lebanon’s airspace.“These continuous Israeli violations are clear proof of the hostile nature of the Israeli enemy and even though Lebanon has filed many complaints to the UN, we are dealt with double standards. Israel was always treated as an exception and its disregard of international resolutions was unpunished,” Qassem Hashem, a Lebanese lawmaker told Press TV. AR/PKH
