Identical letters dated 4 January 2006 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 violations of Lebanese sovereignty which occurred during December 2005, i.e., a total of 96 violations (see annex).
These violations are in contravention 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 counts 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.
