Prime Minister Saad Hariri contacted Tuesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and informed him that “the Israeli attack on the southern suburbs of Beirut is a dangerous act, an attack against the Lebanese sovereignty and a violation of resolution 1701, which preserved calm and stability over the past years.”

Hariri also said that Lebanon is counting on Russia's role to avoid further escalation and tension, and to send clear messages to Israel that it must stop violating the Lebanese sovereignty.

 

He stressed that Israel's attack against a civilian populated area strikes a blow to the stable situation that prevailed on the border since the issuance of resolution 1701, and threatens to seriously escalate the situation in the region, with unpredictable results.
