UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that an increase in tensions between Lebanon and Israel could lead to a new conflict with potentially devastating consequences.

In a report to the UN Security Council circulated Friday, Ban accused both countries of violating the 2006 cease-fire resolution that ended the 34-day war between Israel and Hezbullah militants in southern Lebanon.

Ban said Hezbullah continues to maintain "a substantial military capacity" in violation of UN resolutions, and he again called for Hezbullah and other militias to be disarmed.

Ban accused Israel of conducting daily overflights of Lebanon, refusing to withdraw from the disputed northern border village of Ghajar, and crossing the UN-drawn Blue Line separating the two sides.
