Israel’s overnight airstrikes highlight ‘aggressive intentions,’ says Lebanese president

Lebanon’s president has hit out at Israel and its “aggressive intentions” after the Israel Defense Forces launched overnight airstrikes on Lebanese villages in response to militant activity on Wednesday.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun blasted Israel’s use of force in attacking targets in Lebanon on Wednesday night. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) airstrikes on Lebanese villages underline “escalating aggressive intentions that coincide with the continuous threats against Lebanon and its sovereignty,” he stated.

Aoun contended that the assault was a “flagrant and dangerous” violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701 and claimed the move was “a direct threat to security and stability” in the country’s south.

A further tweet stated that Aoun had discussed an investigation into the launch of rockets from Lebanese territory, insisting that measures will be taken. It also noted that submitting a complaint to the UN would be “an indispensable step to deter Israel from continuing its attacks on Lebanon.”
