arab leagueThe foreign ministers of Arab countries have voiced their support for Lebanon’s right to resist aggression by the Israeli regime and to liberate its occupied territories.

The foreign ministers of 21 Arab and North African states voiced their support in a

statement on Monday following a meeting in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

    “Lebanon and the Lebanese have the right to liberate or retrieve the Shebaa Farms, Kfar Shuba Hills and the Lebanese part of the Ghajar village, and to resist any Israeli aggression or occupation with all legitimate and available means,” the statement read.

The foreign ministers also hailed the role of Lebanon’s army in preserving the country’s stability and civil peace.

Lebanon’s new Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said at the summit that resistance is a human and natural right of the Lebanese people.

He also asked the Arab states to support the Lebanese army in its fight against terrorism.

Israeli warplanes violate Lebanon’s airspace almost on a daily basis, claiming that the flights serve surveillance purposes.

Lebanon’s government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the over-flights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country’s sovereignty.

Earlier this year, Lebanon said that its military would respond to any Israeli aggression, adding that the military was committed to the implementation of all the UN resolutions.
