General Assembly
Sixtieth session
Agenda item 14
The situation in the Middle East
Security Council
Sixty-first year


Identical letters dated 4 May 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 Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty which occurred during April 2006, i.e., a total of 51 violations (see annex).

These violations are in contravention of the relevant Security Council resolutions, the latest of which is resolution 1655 (2006), and go against your repeated calls for their cessation, most recently in your report of 18 January 2006 (S/2006/26). 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.


(Signed) Caroline Ziadeh
Chargé d’affaires a.i.
