Lebanon's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Amal Mudallali Thursday warned against Israel's planned wall along the southern border, saying that it could eventually lead to conflict.Mudallali described Israel's actions as "provocative", telling the Security Council that they show that Israel was failing to abide by its duties under Resolution 1701, which ended Israel's 34-day war against Lebanon in 2006 .He told Beary that Lebanon was demanding that attention be paid to the 13 specific points along the Blue Line that the government has reservations about, stressing that Lebanon doesn't consider the Blue Line to be the final border.During her speech Mudallali said that there were some options for Israel if it was looking for stability in the area, while urging the U.N. to take action. Touching on the Arab-Israeli conflict and the United States' decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Mudallali told the council that peace in the Middle East seems to be a distant prospect at this time.
