Security Council
Sixtieth year



Identical letters dated 11 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 detailed statistical table showing the number of Israeli air, sea and land violations of Lebanese sovereignty committed during the period from 1 to 9 November 2005. Such violations have increased in recent days, reaching a total of 29 during the said period (see annex).

These violations are in contravention of the relevant Security Council resolutions, the latest of which is resolution 1614 (2005), and go against your repeated calls for their cessation, most recently in your 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 sixtieth session of the General Assembly under agenda item 14, on the situation in the Middle East, and of the Security Council.


(Signed) Ibrahim Assaf
Chargé d’affaires
