Lebanese Army increases presence near Israel border amid growing tensions
The Lebanese Army increased their presence along the Israeli border, Tuesday, following the IDF’s repeated violations in the occupied Sheba’a Farms area.
According to a Lebanese Army communique, their forces have been observing the IDF’s recent construction of earthen barricades and trenches near the village of Al-Ghajar and occupied town of ‘Abbasiyeh.
In addition to the IDF’s illegal construction projects, the Israeli Air Force continues to violate Lebanese airspace, despite repeated warnings from Beirut about respecting their territorial sovereignty.
Recently, the Israeli Defense Forces infuriated the Lebanese Army after the former fired a smoke grenade at their positions near the Sheba’a Farms; this was observed by the UN forces present inside the country.
