Lebanon's ambassador to the U.N. Tuesday blasted Israeli claims at the Security Council that the Port of Beirut was being used to smuggle Hezbollah weapons, saying the accusations were a direct threat to peace and civilian infrastructure.Mudallali was speaking after Tel Aviv's ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, claimed that his country had found that Iran and its Al-Quds Force had begun to advance the exploitation of civilian maritime channels, "and specifically the Port of Beirut".The outlandish Israeli diplomat also claimed that Al-Quds Force was sending "dual-use items" to Hezbollah.Although Mudallali's speech focused in large part on the Palestinian cause, she noted that Lebanon was concerned and troubled by the Israeli policy "to alter the legal, physical and demographic status of the occupied Golan Heights".She cited daily Israeli violations of Lebanese territory by land, air and sea as another threat to stability in the region.
