Dore Gold: Give UNIFIL a mandate 'to clean out' southern Lebanon

President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and former foreign ministry director-general Dr. Dore Gold called on the UN Security Council to act in accordance with Resolution 1701, which dated to the Second Lebanon War in 2006, and to clean out the illegal weapons held by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.
"There are about 200 Shiite villages in southern Lebanon," Gold said during a lecture at the Hudson Institute in Washington. "Many residents have prohibited weapons in their homes. They accept payment for it or are simply too frightened to refuse the terrorists' request."
In his remarks, Dr. Gold criticized the UN Security Council for not condemning Hezbollah, despite the fact that the organization acted in contradiction to the Council's 2016 decision, saying that he did not believe they would do so in the future.
