Aoun: Israel violates int’l law, seeks to impose new fait accompli

Days of Palestine -

Lebanese president Michel Aoun has accused Israel of violating all international laws, conventions and norms and seeking to impose a new fait accompli on the ground.

Aoun made the remarks at the first conference of the Levant meeting, entitled: "Meeting and a Breakfast Prayer, Lebanon the Homeland of Dialogue and Civilizations", which was held in Beirut.

The president strongly denounced the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and its exposure to Judaization as “a flagrant violation of all international laws and resolutions, and a dangerous indicator of something being prepared.”

He said that Israel’s violations include settlement expansion, racist legislation and its disrespect for the inviolability of internationally recognized borders.
