BEIRUT: Israeli bulldozers Wednesday destroyed sandbags near Lebanon’s southern border, the state-run National News Agency reported. The works took place during heightened security tensions on the hill overlooking the Wazzani River.
Lebanon’s southern front has been quiet ever since, save for occasional limited exchanges.
“The Lebanese Army proved to be strong and capable of preserving security and stability, despite the fight raging in the region,” Sarraf said.
In February, Israeli troops fired tear gas at Lebanese protesters demonstrating the installation of spying equipment on their agricultural land. A couple of days later, the Lebanese Army set up concrete roadblocks to prevent future incidents, only to have them torn down by Israeli forces.© Copyright The Daily Star 2017.
