Lebanon Calls on United Nations to Renew Peacekeepers' Mandate

Lebanon Calls on United Nations to Renew Peacekeepers' Mandate

Earlier on Monday, Guterres visited Israel's official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, where he reiterated his commitment to fighting anti-Semitism in all its expressions.

He also blamed the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, for being too soft on the Iranian-backed Hezbollah movement which is seeking the destruction of the Jewish State, according to the Israeli prime minister.

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres began day one of his four-day visit to Israel Monday by laying a wreath at Jerusalem's Yad VaShem Holocaust Memorial.

It came as Israeli lawmakers visited Al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem on Tuesday for the first time in two years.

"[Iran] is also building sites to produce precision-guided missiles towards that end in both Syria and in Lebanon".

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has called on the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to stop bias against Israel at the UN by singling out "the world's only Jewish state", Haaretz reported.

Guterres also sharply criticized settlement construction during Tuesday's press conference, characterizing it as an obstacle to the achievement of a two-state solution. Rivlin told the United Nations chief, "I call upon you, Mr. Secretary General, to work to end the discrimination against Israel in some branches of your organization".

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade could reunite with Cavaliers
Earlier in the offseason, Wade opted in to the final year of his contract with the Bulls and is set to collect almost $24 million. According to Cleveland.com's Jo Verdon, people close to LeBron James believe Wade will be playing for the Cavaliers next season.

Hamdallah added that the USA peace team, led by White House advisor Jared Kushner, has not answered the Palestinian team's questions on where the U.S. stands regarding Israeli settlements and the two-state solution. "It has been proven that it does not help peace", he said.

"Israel does not care about criticism and United Nations resolutions and instead escalates its campaign against the Palestinian people", he said. To avoid genuine "bias" in their pursuit of peace, future US policymakers will have to accept this fact - and resolve to make indefinite occupation less comfortable for Israel than it now is.

"We are not going to state what the outcome has to be", Nauert said in response to a question about the two-state solution.

Hamdallah expressed his frustration that UN Security Council resolutions pertaining to the Israel-Palestinian conflict have not been implemented, accusing the UN of applying a double standard in its dealings with Israel.

A report said Israel plans to establish a new Jewish neighborhood in the city of Jerusalem and to increase police presence in the city. But the Guterres agenda is more about the Gaza Strip.

Besides Israel and the Palestinian territories, Macron said the trip will include Lebanon and Jordan.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas is now visiting Turkey and was not expected to meet Guterres.
