Identical letters dated 25 November 2005 from the Chargé d’affaires a.i. of the Permanent Mission of Lebanon to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council


On instructions from my Government, I transmit to you herewith a statistical table showing the number of Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty which occurred during October 2005, i.e., a total of 83 violations (see annex).

These acts of aggression are in violation of the relevant Security Council resolutions, the latest of which is resolution 1614 (2005), and go against the Secretary-General’s repeated calls for their cessation, most recently in his report S/2005/460 of 20 July 2005. Lebanon depends on the United Nations to compel Israel to desist from those violations, which constitute a threat to international peace and security, and holds Israel responsible for any consequences to which those acts may give rise.

I should be grateful if you would have this letter and its annex circulated as a document of the General Assembly under agenda item 14 and of the Security Council.


(Signed) Ibrahim Assaf
Chargé d’affaires a.i.
