Hezbollah infrastructure in a Lebanese village
'Hezbollah hasn't been stopped'
At a UN Security Council meeting discussing 10 years since resolution 1701 ended the Second Lebanon War, Danny Dannon provides evidence of Hezbollah re-arming and fortifying its positions in civilian centers across southern Lebanon.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Dannon presented IDF intelligence, including an aerial photograph of the Lebanese village of Chaqra, to demonstrate how south Lebanon has been turned into a Hezbollah terror stronghold to the UN Security Council.

 

 

He also presented disturbing new evidence of Hezbollah's massive weapons arsenal.

 

The material was presented as part of a UN Security Council discussion on the security situation in the Middle East 10 years after the Second Lebanon War and UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1701 which ended it.

A key component of UNSCR 1701 is having the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNFIL) assist the Lebanese government in securing its borders against the entry of weapons to groups which are not part of the Lebanese security forces, groups such as such as Hezbollah.

 

In practice, this hasn't happened.

 

According to the Ambassador, Hezbollah has a larger missile stockpile than all of the European NATO countries combined. He added that Hezbollah had only 7,000 missiles at the end of the Second Lebanon War when resolution 1701 came into effect. Today, the terror group now has more than 120,000 missiles pointed at various population centers around Israel.

While presenting a photo of Hezbollah infrastructure in the Lebanese village of Chakra, Ambassador Dannon said "the village of Chakra in southern Lebanon has turned into a terror stronghold. One out of every three buildings has been appropriated by Hezbollah, and includes rocket launching positions, weapons storage facilities, and more."

 

"Hezbollah hasn't been stopped," Dannon said, adding, "They chose to establish their firing positions next to schools and other public buildings, thereby endangering the innocent civilian population. It is the responsibility of the UN security council to get Hezbollah out of south Lebanon."
