Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan sends a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres — and to all members of the UN Security Council — urging them to condemn Hezbollah.

In the letter, Erdan cites rockets fired from Israel into Lebanon both during the 11-day conflict with Hamas in May and again earlier this week.

“These incidents provide another example of the volatile situation within UNIFIL’s Area of Operation and constitute clear evidence of the existence of unauthorized weapons and ammunition in the area,” writes Erdan.

“Israel expects UNIFIL to conduct a thorough and swift investigation with regards to the attack and to convey its conclusions to the Security Council, as explicitly required in the latest renewal of UNIFIL’s mandate,” he adds.
