Lebanon's state-run National News Agency says the country's foreign minister has asked Beirut's representative at the UN Security Council to file a complaint over Israel's building of a wall along their shared border.
The agency quoted on Friday Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil as calling the Israeli move a violation of a UN Security Council resolution that ended the 2006 war between Israel and the militant Hezbollah group.
