Personal Representative of the Secretary-General for Southern Lebanon
Calls for Halt to Air Violations


Beirut, 17 October 2001 (UN Information Centre) - The Personal Representative of the Secretary-General for southern Lebanon (PRSG) has noted with concern that one Israeli military aircraft violated the Blue Line on 16 October.

We are aware that even one such violation of the Blue Line and Lebanese airspace can contribute negatively to an already tense situation.

The PRSG, therefore, reiterates his call upon the Israeli authorities to cease these violations and fully respect the Blue Line.
