Letter dated 16 August 2004 from the Chargé d’affaires a.i. of the Permanent Mission of Lebanon to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General
On instructions from my Government, I have the honour to transmit herewith a summary of Israeli violations and acts of aggression against Lebanon.
These grave violations are part of a series of persistent and provocative Israeli violations of Lebanese territory, including by air, sea and land, and go against the principles of international law, the resolutions of international legitimacy and your repeated calls for their cessation.
In view of these violations and the stepping up of Israeli threats to Lebanon and the safety of its territory and its citizens, Lebanon calls upon the United Nations to deter and prevent Israel from committing such dangerous acts, which pose a threat to international security and peace. Lebanon places upon Israel full responsibility for any consequences to which those acts may give rise.
In drawing your attention to the gravity and possible consequences of such acts, I request to have this letter of complaint and its annex circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under agenda item 37, and of the Security Council.
