Saniora Demands 'Details' on Israeli Incursion

Post by Admin on Wed Apr 16, 2008 8:45 am

Prime
Minister Fouad Saniora on Monday demanded "details" on a brief Israeli
incursion into Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency said.


It
said Saniora held telephone contacts with the commands of the Lebanese
army and the U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon to learn more about the
Israeli violation of Lebanese territory.


The
Lebanese army on Monday said Israeli soldiers made a brief incursion at
the weekend into Lebanon near the disputed Shabaa Farms territory.


Yasmina
Bouziane, spokeswoman for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL), told AFP that the U.N. was investigating the incident.


"A
joint UNIFIL-Lebanese army investigation team was sent east of Kfar
Shouba to look into the circumstances of an alleged IDF (Israeli
Defense Force) Blue Line violation," Bouziane said, referring to the
demarcation line between the two countries.


"The investigation is still ongoing and UNIFIL is in touch with both parties to clarify the matter."
