Patriarch Al-Rahi Urges Lebanon To Uphold Resolution 1701 To Stop Israeli & Hezbollah Attacks

Arab News

Israel shelled the southern border towns of Alma al-Shaab, al-Naqoura, and al-Khiyam on Monday. Israeli residents near the Lebanon border were advised to stay indoors due to a potential security threat.

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi urged Lebanese officials to uphold Resolution 1701, which mandates an immediate cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah. This comes after the tragic death of four Lebanese civilians, escalating tensions on the Lebanon-Israel border.

Clashes have been ongoing for a month, intensifying with Israel’s ground incursion in Gaza. Hezbollah retaliated with rocket attacks after an Israeli strike killed a Lebanese family.
