To ask Her Majesty's Government, following Israel's withdrawal from Ghajar, what steps they have taken to ensure that Hizbollah is not able to use it as a base to attack Israel.

We welcome Israel's recent announcement of its intention to accept proposals put forward by the UN and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon to withdraw Israel Defence Force troops from the northern part of Ghajar. Talks to finalise plans for the withdrawal are not yet complete and we call on Israel and the UN to work together to agree practical measures to implement this proposal as soon as is possible.

We continue to call on all parties to fulfil their obligations under UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
