Israel to UN: Lebanon Ignoring Hizbullah Armament

[Ynet News] Yitzhak Benhorin - Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gabriella Shalev on Tuesday filed an official complaint with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon over Hizbullah's illegally storing of weapons south of the Litani River in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. The compliant referred to Monday's explosion at the home of a Hizbullah operative in south Lebanon. Another explosion took place at a Hizbullah arms cache three months ago. "The aforementioned incidents leave no doubt regarding Hizbullah's modus operandi to place its military weapons and facilities in civilian villages and houses. Such use of civilians as human shields endangers their safety," Shalev wrote.
