Lebanon denounces Israeli violation on southern maritime border

Beirut, Jul 7 (Prensa Latina) The Lebanese Army denounced yet another Israeli naval violation of its southern territorial waters, according to a statement from the Guidance Directorate.

According to the information, an Israeli warship entered the Lebanese territorial waters across at 07:45 local time, at a distance of 4.4 kilometers from the coast and for a period of 10 minutes.

The Lebanese Army pointed out that Israeli infractions, whether by sea or air, are constant and monitored in coordination with the United Nations Interim Force (UNIFIL).

This makes the third time Israel has intruded in Lebanese waters in the last week, since the Operations Directorate reported another two violations near the southern coast last Wednesday.

Despite the expulsion from Lebanon in May 2000, Tel Aviv still maintains occupied farm lands in Shebaa and the hills of Kafar Chuba.

Lebanon and Israel do not keep diplomatic relations and since the 2006 conflict, the UNIFIL keeps the peace on the common border in the south.

The two countries resumed talks on maritime boundaries back in 2020, but the process was put on hold after a request from Lebanese officials to update the map used by the United Nations in the negotiations.
