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.
