Large scale hostilities could break out between Israel and Hezbollah if the Iranian proxy terror group continues its arms buildup along the northern border, Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan told the United Nations Security Council in a brief written report. “Hezbollah’s continued military buildup and harmful activities have the potential to lead to serious consequences including a renewal of large scale hostilities between the parties,” Erdan wrote in a letter he sent to US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield ahead of the UNSC’s closed door session on tensions at that border held last Thursday. He urged the UNSC to act to ensure that Hezbollah is disarmed and the UN peacekeeper mission is empowered to freely monitor that border for violation of UNSC Resolution 1701 which set out the cease fire terms that ended the 2006 Second Lebanon War. UNSC 1701 called for Hezbollah to be disarmed and for the Lebanese Army to be the country’s only military force. “An effective implementation of UNIFIL’s (UN Interim Force in Lebanon) mandate is critical in order to ensure the stability in south Lebanon and along the Blue Line (Israel-Lebanon border),” Erdan wrote.
