Air violation of the Blue Line:
PRSG reiterates call for halt to overflights


Beirut, 21 November 2001 (UN Information Centre) - The Blue Line and Lebanese airspace was violated on 20 November by one Israeli military jet.

It should be recalled that even one air violation is a negative development and cannot be ignored.

In this connection, the Personal Representative of the Secretary-General for southern Lebanon (PRSG), Mr. Staffan de Mistura, again calls upon the Israeli authorities to cease such air violations and to fully respect the Blue Line.
