UN Confirms Hizbullah Has Set Up Outpost in Israeli Territory

(Times of Israel) UNIFIL, the UN peacekeeping mission on the Israeli-Lebanese border, has confirmed that Hizbullah has established an outpost within Israeli territory. UNIFIL confirmed that tents set up and manned by Hizbullah have been established on the Israeli side of the internationally-recognized Blue Line in the Mount Dov region. Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan wrote to the UN Security Council that Hizbullah's actions constitute a violation of UN Resolution 1701, enacted following the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

The IDF believes the tents do not pose a threat to Israel's security and aims initially to deal with the tents through diplomatic means.
