BEIRUT: Caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour said he filed a complaint to the United Nations Wednesday against Israel over its spying on Lebanon.

"I sent a letter to the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of a complaint against Israel for spying on Lebanon," Mansour said, according to the National News Agency.

The minister also sent a compact disc containing the coordinates and bugging devices planted by the Jewish state on the Lebanese-Israeli border.

Mansour said Israel's spying "constituted a flagrant violation of international law and continuous aggression on Lebanese lands, Lebanese people, the military, security, and civilian institutions.”

Mansour also sent similar letters to foreign ministers of nations belonging to the 15-member Security Council, as well as a memo to Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, and Chairman of the Non-Aligned Movement Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

“Israel’s continuous aggression constitutes a violation of international law and relevant international resolutions, particularly Resolution 1701,” Mansour said.

In November, the Committee on Assessing the Dangers of the Israeli Telecomm Towers in Lebanese Territory delivered a detailed review of Israel’s latest spying activities, including recently erected stations, to foreign ambassadors and officials in Lebanon.

The report came in light of the Telecommunications Ministry announcement that Israel had installed surveillance posts along the border with Lebanon capable of monitoring the entire country.
