The Lebanese Foreign Ministry claimed Monday that the source of an explosion in South Lebanon two weeks ago was IDF ammunition and not a Hizbullah weapons cache. According to a report in the London-based Al Hayat, the ministry sent the UN a letter claiming that the July 14 explosion in an abandoned building came from munitions abandoned by IDF troops at the end of the Second Lebanon War. Over the weekend, the UN condemned Hizbullah for violating Resolution 1701 for the first time since the end of the Second Lebanon War. The resolution brought an end to the fighting and also called on Hizbullah to disarm. The building was an active and maintained weapons cache used by Hizbullah, a UN official said.
