United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned Friday that increasing tensions between Lebanon and Israel could lead to a new conflict with potentially devastating consequences.
In a report to the UN Security Council, Ban accused the neighboring countries of violating the 2006 cease-fire resolution that ended the Second Lebanon war and added that the Hezbollah continues to maintain "a substantial military capacity" in violation of UN resolutions and an arms embargo.
Syria has posted the advanced early warning radar received from Iran - not on its own soil but on the highest peak of neighboring Lebanon, according to debkafile's military and intelligence sources. From Mount Sannine in central Lebanon, the new facility provides early warning against a possible Israeli surprise attack on Iran's nuclear facilities and extends the span of Iranian and Syrian electronic surveillance to Israeli air space to the south and the eastern-central Mediterranean to the west.
