Israel to press Guterres on Hezbollah arms buildup

Guterres arrived in Israel Sunday evening for a three-day visit that will include meetings with senior Israeli officials in Jerusalem and Palestinian officials in the West Bank, as well as a stop in the Gaza Strip, where the United Nations runs a major Palestinian aid program. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is apparently anxious for his Monday meeting in order to stress concerns with Iran's creation of a power base in Syria and the United Nations agencies' continuing refusal to acknowledge the blatant flouting of Security Council Resolution 1701 which has allowed the Hizbullah terrorist organization to build formidable arsenals of sophisticated missiles, some 100,000 of which are estimated to be pointed at the Jewish state, and formidable fighting force.

"We welcome you to Israel", Danon told Guterres.

"It is imperative to ramp up pressure on Israel to abide by global law that ensures that Palestinians' rights are protected and Israeli aggressions are halted", Al-Ghanim said. "No one understands this better than us, Israelis".

Guterres will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and will also hold talks with Hamdallah in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday. "I call upon you, Mr. Secretary-General, to work to end discrimination against Israel in some branches of the organization you're heading".

Israel for its part, intends to particularly address to Guterres its ongoing security threats from the north.

Kuwait's Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim has held talks with visiting UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres who was now touring the region.

In an op-ed published in Israel Hayom on Sunday, entitled "A plea to the secretary general", Prosor wrote that Guterres' visit to Israel will be his "first test" of leadership at the UN. "This is something the United Nations should not accept", Netanyahu said.Iran, Israel's arch-enemy, has been Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's staunchest backer and has provided militia fighters to help him in Syria's civil war.There was no immediate comment from Iran.Israel has pointed to Tehran's steadily increasing influence in the region during the six-year-old Syrian conflict, whether via its own Revolutionary Guard forces or Shi'ite Muslim proxies, especially Hezbollah.

His three-day visit is also expected to include a trip to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
