UN Report Ignores Hizbullah Violations

[ Jerusalem Post] UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to submit a quarterly report on Tuesday on the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1701, which cemented the end of the Second Lebanon War. According to reports, the document does not accuse Hizbullah of violating the terms of the cease-fire, despite Israeli allegations that Hizbullah has retaken its border positions and continues to amass rockets and other arms banned under 1701. Defense Minister Ehud Barak has said that "UN Security Council Resolution 1701 is not being implemented. Rockets continue to be moved into Lebanon, Hizbullah is becoming more powerful, and I think it is the Security Council's duty to convene and decide how to ensure that this resolution is indeed being enforced and carried out."
