Israel Complains to UN over Border Shootings


Israel has filed a complaint to the United Nations over cross-border shootings from Lebanon. “We demand that the Government of Lebanon fully investigate the role of the LAF in causing this provocation. Moreover, we expect the Government of Lebanon to take all necessary measures to prevent such dangerous incidents from reoccurring in the future,” said Israel's ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor.

A Lebanese soldiers opened fire on IDF soldiers on Monday. While Lebanon initially blamed Israel, accusing IDF soldiers of having crossed the border, UN forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) disagreed.
