Lebanese army prevents Israel from breaching border

According to a statement from the Orientation Directorate, Lebanese army forces went to the site of the breach to force the Israeli vehicle to halt work on the Blue Line.

The army command said the bulldozer broke into the border line in two steps a distance of two meters in the Marjeyoun plain near the town of Kafr Kila.

At the same time, it confirmed the presence of a United Nations Interim Force (Unifil) patrol at the scene to verify and follow up on the Tel Aviv violation.

In this regard, the correspondent of the local channel Al Manar Ali Shoeib confirmed that the Lebanese army set up tents near the Israeli bulldozer at the border of the settlement to prevent enemy work at night.

The reporter shared snaps via his Twitter account, noting that the excavator driver had left the site and mutual alerting was ongoing.

For the second straight day, Israel is conducting operations near the engineered border fence as tanks were stationed between the southern city of Abbassiyeh and the occupied Shebaa farms yesterday.

Communicator Ali Shoeib himself showed on the microblogging network how the Merkava vehicles maneuvered outside the Blue Line for two hours before being transported by locomotives to the occupied Golan.

Despite the expulsion of its army from Lebanon in May 2000, Tel Aviv still owns the lands of the Shebaa farms and the Kafar Chuba hills, as well as the northern part of the Ghajar area.

Both countries have been in a war situation since the establishment of the State of Israel in the Land of Palestine and during these years many crimes and attacks remain in the minds of the people of Lebanon of the Litani River and the oil given Tel Aviv’s ambitions to conquer the water – and gas wealth.

Since 1978, the UNIFIL contingent has been set up in Lebanon to confirm Israel’s withdrawal from the south and restore peace.

In accordance with Resolution 1701 of August 11, 2006, the international command oversees the cessation of hostilities and assists the Lebanese government in securing its borders and other points to prevent the entry of weapons or similar material without its consent.
