Kingdom deplores current Israeli aggression against Lebanon

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is following with great concern reports of Israel's occupation of the Lebanese village of Arnoun, condemning this as open aggression and against international laws and the Charter of the United Nations.  Saudi Arabia considers this as aimed at expanding the area in southern Lebanon occupied by Israel, and a continuation of Israel's obstinate policy that rejects peace. Saudi Arabia urges the international community to force Israel to implement the UN Security Council's resolution 425 that calls for total and unconditional Israeli withdrawal from the Lebanese territories it occupies.
