Israeli forces cross Lebanese border
Tue, 18 Nov 2008 18:27:19 GMT

Israeli army patrol has crossed the Lebanese border, violating the UN
Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1701, the Lebanese army says.

"In continuance of the ongoing violations of UN Resolution 1701, an
Israeli enemy patrol consisting of eight soldiers crossed the line of
Israeli withdrawal between the (Lebanese) villages of Kfar Shouba and
Halta … 60 metres (197 feet) into Lebanese territory," AFP quoted an
army statement on Tuesday.

The Indian contingent with the UN peacekeeping force in the area "made the patrol withdraw," the statement added.

The regime has repeatedly violated the UNSC Resolution 1701, which
put an end to the 33-day Israeli war on Lebanon in summer 2006.

The Lebanese army reported earlier this month that 12 Israeli
warplanes had overflown northern and southern parts of the country.
