The violence along Lebanon’s border, which also killed two Israeli soldiers, was the deadliest escalation on the disputed frontier since the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel.
Israel’s ambassador quickly pointed out that the council statement didn’t mention the Israeli soldiers or condemn Hezbollah. “The Security Council seems to think that some lives have more value than others,” Ron Prosor said in an emailed statement.
A council diplomat said Russia blocked a French-drafted press statement on Tuesday that would have condemned the Hezbollah attack on the Israeli soldiers as a violation of the resolution that ended the 2006 war as well as the death of the Spanish peacekeeper, saying it was “unbalanced.”
