Israel Demands UN Security Council Condemn Hizbullah

(Times of Israel) Israel's ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor called on the Security Council to condemn Hizbullah Wednesday after a deadly cross border attack left two Israeli soldiers dead. In a letter, Prosor said he had repeatedly warned of "the escalating threat posed by Hizbullah," saying it has been stockpiling weapons in southern Lebanon in contravention of UN Resolution 1701, which ended hostilities with Hizbullah in 2006. "The international community cannot ignore the threat any longer. Israel will not stand by as Hizbullah targets Israelis. Israel will not accept any attacks on its territory....The terror organization must be disarmed, and the Lebanese government must stand by its commitment to the international resolutions," Prosor said.
