NEW YORK - Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon filed a formal complaint to the UN Secretary General after Hezbollah set off a large bomb on the Israel - Lebanon border, on the western section of Mount Dov on Monday, targeting two armored military vehicles that were clearing a road in the area.

Danon said the attack is a “flagrant violation” of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which was passed in summer 2006 and called for a disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon, including Hezbollah. The resolution also states that no armed forces other than the United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon and the Lebanese army will be posted south of the Litani River.

The complaint, which was also filed to the Security Council, stated that “the United Nations must condemn the terrorist attack against Israel and demand that Lebanon stop all terrorist activities coming from its territory.”  Danon added that Israel will act strongly against any manifestations of violence against it.
