Israel Tells UN: Hizbullah Set Up Observation Posts under Guise of Environmental NGO

(Ynet News) Itamar Eichner - Hizbullah has set up a network of observation posts along the Israel-Lebanon border under the guise of a civilian organization called Green Without Borders, according to intelligence Israel has passed on to the UN Security Council. The Hizbullah-funded group's declared goal is to raise awareness to environmental protection. In April, a group of civilians denied the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) access to an observation post belonging to Green Without Borders. Israel's letter to the UN included photos of the observation posts and maps detailing their exact locations. "This evidence proves Hizbullah is working along the Blue Line under the guise of civilian activity, while violating UN Security Council Resolutions 1701 and 1559," Danon wrote. "Hizbullah continues to grow its strength in southern Lebanon and is threatening the stability of the entire region. The international community must not turn a blind eye to these dangerous threats." He called on the Security Council to demand that the Lebanese government dismantle the observation posts immediately.
