The UN-imposed ceasefire following the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon is holding "very well," UN special envoy for Lebanon Michael Williams said on Thursday according to DPA.

While saying that Israel and Lebanon have abided by the ceasefire, he did not reject speculation that Hezbollah has been receiving a large amount of military aid, DPA said.

He added that if Hezbollah were receiving missiles that can reach Israel, it would constitute a violation of the UN resolution, however, he said he could not prove reports.
