ISRAEL MOVING FORCES ALONG LEBANON'S BORDERS REPORTED AS UNUSUAL MILITARY ACTIVITY
JUNE 26 2009
"The scope of threats against us has widened from Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists to Iran, which is working to attain nuclear capabilities. We will not remove any option from the table and advise others to do the same," the defense minister said, hinting that Israel was prepared to carry out a military strike against Iran if diplomatic efforts to halt the Islamic Republic's nuclear program fail.
BEIRUT, June 25 (Xinhua) -- The Israeli army has set new
military buildup along its border with Lebanon Thursday, amid intensified air
force flights over Lebanese territories, the official national News agency (NNA)
Merkava tanks and armored vehicles were deployed along the wired fence separating occupied Shebaa Farms from Lebanese territories, the report said.
The NNA described the Israeli military setup as "unusual military activities," while the Israeli air force carried out several flights over Al-Arqoub village, Hasbaya, Marjeyoun, West Bekaa and Ialim al-Toufah in southern Lebanon.
Israel fought a 34-day devastating war with the Lebanese Shiite armed group Hezbollah in July 2006.
Lebanon is still in a state of war with Israel. However, an Israeli army delegation has proposed to a Lebanese military delegation Wednesday during a meeting sponsored by UN interim forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL), direct political bilateral talks between the government of Lebanon and Israel, according to a report by local As-Safir daily Thursday.
The Lebanese side replied that the Lebanese government instructions were limited to discuss the implementation of UN Resolution 1701.
Resolution 1701 ended the Israeli-Hezbollah war in 2006, and set restrictions on both sides to cease all acts of hostility. #
