The situation in the Middle East
Security Council
Fifty-seventh year

Letter dated 8 October 2002 from the Chargé d’affaires a.i. of the
Permanent Mission of Lebanon to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General


On instructions from my Government, I have the honour to transmit to you herewith a statistical breakdown of Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty during the month of September 2002.

The breaches of Lebanon’s sovereignty that Israel commits on land, at sea and in the air are in violation of the Blue Line and of the provisions of Security Council resolution 425 (1978), and they pose a threat to stability and promote a climate of tension in the region.

I should be grateful if you would have this letter circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under agenda item 36, and of the Security Council.


( Signed) Houssam Asaad Diab
Chargé d’affaires a.i.
