Lebanon Monitoring Israeli Border Activity

BEIRUT, Lebanon, Aug. 10 (UPI) — The Lebanese military announced it was put on high alert after Israeli forces allegedly advanced several hundred feet across the border.

The Lebanese military said it deployed a unit to the border to monitor Israeli activity. The military claimed about a dozen members of the Israeli military advanced more than 600 feet across the border, the Daily Star newspaper in Lebanon reports.

The military added it was working with members of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon to assess Israeli activity.

UNIFIL last week confirmed a “brief exchange” of gunfire between Israeli and Lebanese forces along the so-called Blue Line separating the countries.

Six members of the French contingent of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon were injured in July when their convoy hit what authorities said was a roadside bomb in Sidon.

The attack on UNIFIL was the second in 2011. Six Italian peacekeepers were injured by a roadside bomb in May near the site of the French attack.
