Netanyahu: The World Has Yet to Blame Iran for Lebanon Attack

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Sunday evening with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and noted that to this point, there has been no condemnation of Iran for last week’s attacks near the Israel-Lebanon border.

The international community “has yet to point an accusatory finger at Iran which was behind the attack on the northern border, has been trying to establish a terrorist front against Israel on the Golan Heights and is exporting terrorism around the world," Netanyahu told the UN chief.

The Prime Minister also expressed his dissatisfaction over the fact that UN Resolution 1707, which ended the Second Lebanon War in 2006, is not being implemented and that the UNIFIL soldiers are not reporting on the smuggling of weapons into southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah’s antitank missile attack on the IDF last Wednesday killed Major Yochai Kalangel and Staff Sgt. Dor Nini and wounded seven others. 

Netanyahu on Sunday thanked Ban for sending his condolences over the deaths of the two soldiers, and also expressed his condolences over the death of Francisco Javier Soria, a Spanish UN peacekeeper who was killed in Lebanon during Israeli shelling near the border.

Netanyahu noted that he and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy had agreed to carry out a joint probe into Soria’s death.
