SARRAF INFORMS BEARY THAT LEBANON REJECTS ISRAEL’S VIOLATIONS

Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf contacted Saturday afternoon UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander, Major General Michael Beary, with talks centering on the most recent developments particularly the latest Israeli threats, Sarraf’s media office said in a statement today.

“Lebanon rejects the ongoing Israeli breaches, most recent of which were today’s mock raids over the Southern villages,” the statement added.

The Minister stressed “Lebanon’s rejection and condemnation of Israel’s use of Lebanese airspace to carry out its raids,” placing it within the framework of “blatant violation of Lebanese sovereignty.”

Earlier, Sarraf contacted Army Commander Joseph Aoun, with whom he discussed the recent tension along the Southern borders.
