He also voiced Germany's readiness to work with all parties to ensure that this is achieved.

 

For his part, Bassil expressed Lebanon's appreciation for Germany's efforts in this regard, asserting that Lebanon wants stability because its economic and social interests and prevailing conditions cannot bear any escalation.

 

“Israel is the one attacking Lebanon and has gone from 150 air, sea and land violations a month to 250 breaches,” the minister explained.

 

"What happened was an attack by drones in the heart of the southern suburb of Beirut, a very dangerous precedent that Lebanon cannot accept, and a new kind of violation that threatens the lives and properties of the Lebanese at every moment, if acknowledged and not stopped," he added.

 

In this context, Bassil stressed the need that "Israel must return to the equation of tranquility existing since 2006, under the UN Resolution 1701," reiterating that "Lebanon will not tolerate any deviation from this equation."
