There is an "actively maintained" weapons cache in southern Lebanon, a senior UN diplomat said Thursday. During a briefing of the Security Council, the UN's head of peacekeeping Alain Le Roy indicated that weapons exposed after a July 14 explosion in southern Lebanon were being actively maintained, a violation of a UN-brokered resolution that ended hostilities between Lebanon and Israel in 2006. Following a briefing by Le Roy on Thursday, a request made by the United States, US Ambassador Alejandro Wolff told reporters that the Under-Secretary-General confirmed the weapons in southern Lebanon were current and not only weapons brought there prior to 2006. Wolff also addressed the pelting of UN peacekeepers with stones following the explosion, which hampered the initial investigation. Israeli officials have cited the incident as evidence that Hizbullah is rearming in the region.
