Annan, who spoke after meeting with Defense Minister Amir Peretz, said Israel was responsible for most of the violations of the fragile cease-fire that ended the 34-days of fighting between Israel and Hizbullah guerrillas in southern Lebanon. He also called on Israel to lift its blockade of Lebanon. Peretz said Israel hoped to end the blockade soon, though he did not clarify when that would happen. Israel has demanded that Lebanese and international forces take control of the Lebanon-Syrian border to prevent Hizbullah guerrillas from smuggling in arms.
