Israel gets creative about stealing Lebanese soil, literally
Lebanon-Israel, Politics, 11/4/1998
In its occupation of south Lebanon and destruction of many towns and efforts to loot Lebanese water resources, Israel has something new to steal, rich Lebanese top soil, and the Lebanese government has finally brought this issue to light.
In messages addressed to the UN secretary-general, the UN Security Council and the Presidency of the European Union, Lebanese Foreign Minister Fares Boueiz demanded an end to the Israeli practices regarding stealing Lebanese soil from the occupied strip of south Lebanon, moving the soil to Israel.
This practice comes within the framework of the Israeli aggressive practices against Lebanon, the Lebanese minister said. He warned against the dangers of these practices that lead to damage to the environment and displace Lebanese citizens.
The message said that work on removing the top soil started two weeks ago, and hundreds of tons of soil were taken into Israel.
