The IDF Spokespersons Unit has released a video listing the five ways that Hezbollah is violating United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701.

Passed at the end of 2006's Second Lebanon War between Israel and Hezbollah, the resolution called for the Iran-backed militia to be disarmed. The IDF estimates that Hezbollah today possesses over 150,000 rockets, including guided missiles that could wreck havoc on Israel's infrastructure in the event of a future war.

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been lobbying the United Nations to take a harder stance against Hezbollah's weapons smuggling efforts.

On Friday, Haley leveled harsh criticism at Irish Major General Michael Beary, the commander of United Nations forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL), accusing him of turning a blind eye to Iran’s covert arming of the Hezbollah terrorist group.

”General Beary says there are no Hezbollah weapons,” she said. ”That’s an embarrassing lack of understanding on what’s going on around him."
