Bibi to UN: Condemn Hezbollah's Wanton Acts of Aggression

The United Nations Security Council is scheduled to discuss the attack tunnels currently being dug by Hezbollah — and currently being discovered and destroyed by Israel — and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had words for the international body ahead of its debate. Ynet News reports that Netanyahu called on the U.N. to change its anti-Israel ways and "stand up for the truth":

Speaking ahead of a Security Council session on the issue, Netanyahu said UNIFIL, the UN presence in Lebanon, should be granted "unrestrained access to any area in southern Lebanon," where the Iranian-backed Hezbollah has traditionally operated unfettered. He said that UNIFIL should not be hampered in its work, or restricted by Hezbollah or the Lebanese army in any way.

"I demand that UNIFIL meet its mandate," Netanyahu said, adding that the organization must report "any violations" of UN Resolution 1701 to both the United Nations and Israel...

"I hope the UNSC stands up for the truth and takes the necessary action," Netanyahu said, and called on the UN Security Council to "stand up for truth and peace and security and take necessary action."

He said that Israel "has the right to defend itself against Iranian aggression," and "will continue to take all the necessary action to protect our people and defend our borders..."
