Lebanon files complaint to UN Security Council against Israel

Tensions between Israel and neighbouring state Lebanon have escalated since the senior Hamas official Saleh al-Arouri was killed in a targeted assassination in Beirut, Lebanon on 2 January 2024. Hezbollah, Hamas' Lebanese ally and a Shia Islamist political and militant group, claim that Israel is responsible for the attacks while Isreal has denied the allegation. Following the killing, Lebanon has filed a complaint to the UN Security Council describing the incident as the “most dangerous phase” of Israel’s attacks on Lebanon.

The prospect of a broader regional conflict is growing as video footages of Israeli warplanes dropping internationally banned white phosphorus on residential areas in Al-Khayaam, South Lebanon are being shared on social media. See an X post of the alleged Israeli attacks on Lebanon:

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
