إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Tension was high on Monday along Mays al-Jabal region in South Lebanon after Israeli soldiers installed barbed wire fence in the area, the National News Agency reported.

Israeli troops have installed a 200 m barbed wire along the Blue Line, said NNA.

The agency said tensions surged after dozens of Israeli troops and three Poclain excavators crossed the electronic border fence in Kroum al-Sharaqi in Mays al-Jabal 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.

Complaints, complaints and more complaints, but no-one has even suggested that Israelis have penetrated even one single millimetre of Lebanese territory.

Philippo what is bothering you from this article? It's an informative article.
Israelis penetrate Lebanese airspace on a daily basis. They also have occupied south Lebanon for 18 years and still do occupy many other undisputed territories. They have a history of continuous occupation and ethnic cleansing. The Shebaa farms, the Golan heights and the West Bank are all occupied territories according to international resolutions.

"They also have occupied south Lebanon for 18 years"
Even the UN states categorically that Israel does not occupy as single square millimetre of Lebanese territory.

"The Shebaa farms, the Golan heights and the West Bank are all occupied territories according to international resolutions."
What has this got to do with the article? None of these territories are, or were, Lebanese territory.

While the Israelies are searching for SOS Love tunnels used by IceNormaJane, Hundreds of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers invaded, on Monday evening, the vicinity of the historic Christian Mar Saba (St. Saba) Monastery, near the al-‘Obeydiyya town, east of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.

Philippo don't pick and choose what you wish to discuss. It is factual that Israelis have no respect of Lebanese sovereignty. There is a public record held by the UNIFIL of the times Israel penetrates Lebanese airspace in violation of resolution 1701. Two of the tunnels that were found cross the Blue Line. These constitute two violations of UN Security Council resolution 1701 as opposed to the daily ones committed by Israel. From 5 July to 24 October 2018, UNIFIL
recorded 550 air violations, totaling 2,057 overflight hours. Unmanned aerial
vehicles accounted for 481 of the violations (87 per cent), with the remaining
violations involving fighter jets or unidentified aircraft. UNIFIL protested against all
the violations to the Israel Defense Forces and urged their immediate cessation.
