The situation in the Middle East
Security Council
Sixtieth year


Identical letters dated 8 September 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 statistical table showing the number of Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty which occurred during August 2005, i.e., a total of 79 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 depends on the United Nations to compel Israel to desist from these 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 request you to have this letter and its annex circulated to the members of the Security Council as a document of the Council under the agenda item on the situation in the Middle East.


(Signed) Ibrahim Assaf
Chargé d’affaires a.i.
