Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan said in a letter addressed to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres that Security Council members need to be made aware of the rising tensions in Southern Lebanon, especially along the Blue Line, the border demarcation between Israel and Lebanon. Erdan’s letter was sent in advance of the renewal of the mandate of UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon).

“I am confident that the Council's ability to attain a comprehensive and credible understanding of UNIFIL's activities can only be achieved through an accurate description of the facts on the ground,” he wrote. Erdan noted that Iranian-proxy Hezbollah has continued “its presence and undisturbed military entrenchment in UNIFIL's Area of Operation, and along the Blue Line” even after the adoption of Security Council Resolution 2539 (2020) which gave UNIFIL responsibility for supporting the Lebanese people in the wake of the Beirut port explosion of August 2020.
