Lebanon's U.N. representative voiced fears of a lead-up to another Israeli invasion at a U.N. Security Council meeting convened Wednesday to discuss the alleged discovery of tunnels along Lebanon's southern border.During the meeting, Permanent Representative of Lebanon to the United Nations Amal Mudallali accused the international body of double standards regarding violations of Security Council Resolution 1701, adopted to end Israel's 2006 war on Lebanon.She pointed to Israel's numerous airspace violations and other incursions into Lebanese territory. The U.N. peacekeeping force in south Lebanon Monday confirmed the existence of four tunnels on the border, at least two of which crossed the Blue Line.Some Security Council members -- most notably the U.S. -- pointed to Hezbollah as a threat to Israel, while others, including Kuwait, pointed to Israeli airspace violations in Lebanon and said the resolution should not be selectively enforced.However, a dispute broke out Monday after Israeli soldiers rolled out 200 meters of barbed wire along the Blue Line, while the Lebanese Army objected to its placement and asked UNIFIL forces to tell the Israelis to move it.
