Jewish delegation to United Nations head Guterres

Netanyahu pressed Guterres on the United Nations peacekeeping force in neighbouring Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, with Israeli officials having accused it of "blindness" to what they call an arms buildup by the Shiite group Hezbollah.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday met with UN Secretary-General António Guterres at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem, where he told his guest about the imbalance in the global organization treatment of Israel.

The visit comes at a time of Israel-UN tensions. The resolution also forbids Hizbullah from conducting activities in south Lebanon, but acting under the guise of a paper organization, has militarized entire villages that lie in close proximity to the Jewish state.

In response to Netanyahu's comments, Guterres told reporters on Tuesday that both Israel and the Palestinians should refrain from taking any action that could undermine the prospects for a peaceful agreement.

The Palestinians received a boost from Guterres, who assured them the worldwide community remains solidly behind the goal of Palestinian independence and rejects Israeli settlements, which he called illegal and a "major obstacle" to peace.

Guterres landed in the Ben Gurion Airport outside Tel Aviv on Sunday night for a three-day visit, seeking to find ways to revive the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"We recognize that settlement activity.is illegal under worldwide law and that settlement activity is an obstacle that needs to be removed in relation to the possibility of the two-state solution to be adequately implemented", he said. "There is no doubt that the United Nations has a discriminatory attitude towards Israel, but I hope you will have an opportunity to see the strong Israel that works to acquire knowledge for the benefit of our people and humanity as a whole", Netanyahu said.

Israeli lawmaker Yehuda Glick, shot in 2014 over his campaign for Jewish prayer an ultra-sensitive Jerusalem holy site, visited there on Tuesday during a one-day break in a government ban.

"This is our land", he also said.

Besides Israel and the Palestinian territories, Macron said the trip will include Lebanon and Jordan.
