The British Government is aware of reports of the construction of cross-border tunnels from Lebanon into Israel. The UN Monitoring Mission, UNIFIL, confirmed a violation of UNSCR 1701 to the UN Security Council on 19 December 2018. We urge the newly formed Lebanese Government to take necessary steps to ensure any violations of 1701 are addressed.
