Explosion in South Lebanon is another evidence of Hezbollah’s breach of Resolution 1701

Late last night, around midnight, an explosion rocked the South Lebanon town of Siddiqin. Reports suggest that explosion took place in a weapons armory of terrorists group, Hezbollah. This is yet another evidence that Hezbollah is in constant violation of Security Council Resolution 1701.

At the end of the war between Israel and Hezbollah in Summer of 2006 (initiated by Hezbollah militants who crossed the international border, attacked an Israeli army patrol and abducted two resorved forces soldiers), the Security Council passed a resolution to enforce peace throughout the border – it stationed an international force UNIFIL to South Lebanon and have clearly stated that no arms are along south of the Litani River.

De-facto, said resolution has been breached from almost day one. Since the end of summer of 2006, Both Iran and Syria have been heavily arming Hezbollah who admits he has more weapons and militants today than in 2006, and most Western intellegint agencies (including Israel’s) say clearly that Hezbollah has over 40,000 rockets ready to be fired at Israel’s civilian population at any moment, especially in case of an international intervention in Syria (a la Libya).

Ever since summer of 2006 tensions have been rising high. A well-equipped Hezbollah is still deterred but as time fades it seems its’ next attack is not far. In the years that have passed, Hezbollah has estabilished itself stronger into government branches and is today almost the ruling party of the Labanese parliment. A terror group, no less, which has much more ammunition and soldiers than Labanon’s own official military. A terror group which single-handedly brought down the previous Labanese goverment after the International Court in Hague issued arrest warrants to five of its’ members with charges of murdering the former Labanese prime minister in 2005.

For over six years now, South of the Litani River has been flowing with weapons and militants. It’s almost a well-known fact. This explosion, which Hezbollah tonight denied was an armory (and has refused to give access to authorities), is another one in a string of evidence to show Hezbollah’s preparation for an attack on Israel. While its’ militants and high-ranks hide within civilian population, and while UNIFIL seems more decorative than actually doing everything it can to enforce Resolution 1701 and dismantle Hezbollah (at the very least in the south of Lebanon), the entire world knows (not an exaggeration). Knows but does nothing.

Yet when Hezbollah finally attacks (a matter of time, especially now with the situation in Syria), the world that kept quiet would be enraged by the conflict, the war and the civilian casaulties. The Security Council whose resolution are a mockery would assemble to condemn and bring forth another resolution that would in turn too have no effect in dismantling terror or the threats of terror against Israel. It’s exactly what happened after 2006. It’s exactly what happens right now.
