Israeli military jet violates Blue Line/PRSG calls for halt to overflights'


Beirut, 30 October 2001 (UN Information Centre) - The Personal Representative of the Secretary-General for Southern Lebanon (PRSG), Mr. Staffan de Mistura, has noted with concern that an Israeli military jet violated the Blue Line on 29 October 2001.

The PRSG is of the belief that even one such violation may contribute negatively to the already tense situation.

In this regard, the PRSG reiterates his call upon the Israeli authorities to half such air violations and to fully respect the Blue Line.
