UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in his 16th report on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559 published on Thursday that the drone Hezbollah sent to Israel earlier this month could risk stability in Lebanon.

Resolution 1559 calls for foreign forces to refrain from interfering in Lebanon's sovereignty.

In his report, Ban urged Hezbollah to cease any military activities inside or outside of Lebanon, saying Hezbollah's launch of the drone to Israel is "a reckless provocation that could lead to a dangerous escalation threatening Lebanon’s stability."

Israeli officials have said that given Hezbollah's participation in the Lebanese government, Jerusalem would consider reacting to any Hezbollah attack on Israel with retaliation on the Lebanese state.
