The cease-fire between Israel and Lebanon is being honored, said UN Secretary General Koffi Annan, Israel Radio reported early Saturday morning. He added that Israel's flights over Lebanon are a violation of the agreement and cause damage to Lebanon's sovereignty. "There have been no major incidents between Israel and Hizbullah since the implementation of UNSC Resolution 1701," Annan wrote in his report to the Security Council. The UN head stated that an unconditional release of the kidnapped IDF soldiers and of Lebanese prisoners held in Israel is of top priority. Annan added that the UN had received reports of events involving the smuggling of weapons from Syria to Lebanon, but had been unable to verify their authenticity.
