The Israeli regime is holding military exercises to train soldiers on how to invade the south of Lebanon and fight the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.

The war games are underway in a training camp at Elyakim military base near the northern Haifa city.

The camp, built in 2006 following the Israel-Lebanon war, is modeled on a village in south Lebanon. Israeli soldiers undergo training in the camp to learn to fight Hezbollah in the future.

In 2006, Hezbollah forces caused havoc on invading Israeli forces in the south and eastern parts of Lebanon. Israel was forced to retreat without achieving any of its objectives.

The Israeli military frequently violates Lebanon's airspace, territorial waters and border.

The violations contravene United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched on Lebanon in 2006, calls on Tel Aviv to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
