Israeli Troops Erect New Sand Barrier near Border

The Israeli military embarked on erecting a sand barrier in Mays al-Jabal-Tallet Sharaqi on the border with Lebanon on Monday, LBCI TV station reported.

Israel operated under the monitoring of the UNIFIL, added LBCI.

On Sunday, tensions surged after dozens of Israeli troops and a Poclain excavator crossed the electronic border fence and started drilling works near the U.N.-demarcated Blue Line.

The move prompted the Lebanese Army and UNIFIL peacekeepers to go on alert in the area.

Earlier Israeli forces said they uncovered another Hizbullah tunnel dug from Lebanon into the northern occupied territory of Palestine.

Israel began an operation last week to detect and "neutralize" what it called attack passageways dug by the Iranian-backed group into northern Israel.
