UN condemns Israeli fire at Lebanon border protest

BEIRUT - The United Nations condemned on Monday Israel's "disproportionate, deadly force" against demonstrators mourning the anniversary of the founding of Israel.
"I am shocked by the number of the deaths and the use of disproportionate, deadly force by the Israeli Defense Forces against apparently unarmed demonstrators, which I condemn," UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Michael Williams said.
"I strongly reiterate the need for all sides to exercise maximum restraint, to prevent the recurrence of such violence and to strictly adhere to resolution 1701," said Williams, referring to the UN resolution that halted hostilities between Israel and Shi'ite terror group Hezbollah in a 2006 war.
