General Assembly

Agenda item 37
The situation in the Middle East
Security Council
Fifty-eighth year

Letter dated 16 October 2003 from the Permanent
Representative of Lebanon to the United Nations
addressed to the Secretary-General

On instructions from my Government, I transmit to you herewith a statistical table showing the number of Israeli air, sea and land violations of Lebanese sovereignty during September 2003, i.e., a total of 64 violations.

These acts of aggression reaffirm Israel’s hostile attitude, and the nature and number of those unjustified and inexcusable violations and acts of aggression confirm Israel’s premeditated intent to threaten and provoke and to disrupt security and stability in order to serve its aggressive, expansionist objectives throughout the region.

The Mission of Lebanon, in drawing the attention of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the gravity and possible consequences of such acts of aggression, requests to have this letter of complaint circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under agenda item 37, and of the Security Council.


(Signed) Sami Kronfol
Ambassador
Permanent Representative
