A short while ago Israel's UN Ambassador Danny Danon sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council demanding that they condemn the Hezbollah terrorist tunnels in the strongest terms possible and hold the Lebanese government "responsible for the dangerous destabilization of the region."

In his letter, Danon wrote that "Hezbollah is advancing an Iranian agenda to turn southern Lebanon into a launching pad for attacks that threaten the lives of innocent Israelis, while endangering Lebanon and its citizens."

In light of the violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, Danon wrote: "The Lebanese government must abide by its international commitments and fully implement the above mentioned Security Council resolutions.

"The construction of these tunnels, built by Hezbollah and funded by Iran, alongside the ongoing efforts to transfer arms, convert inaccurate projectiles into precision-guided missiles, and manufacture precision-guided missiles in Lebanon are a flagrant violation of Israel’s sovereignty and mark yet another stage of Hezbollah’s ongoing efforts to expand its military build-up and further destabilize the already volatile region," the Ambassador added.
