UN Peacekeepers Warned Against Sensitive Activities On Lebanese-Israeli Borders

(MENAFN- Nam News Network)

BEIRUT, Jan 21 (NNN-NNA) – The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), warned yesterday, against conducting any works or activities that could lead to tension, near the Lebanese-Israeli borders.

The UN agency's spokesperson, Andrea Tenenti, said that,“UNIFIL peacekeepers are on the ground at the work site, to monitor if there is any violation of the Blue Line, reduce tension and prevent misunderstandings.”

“We are in constant contact with both parties and stress the sensitivity of any works or activities close to the Blue Line,” he added.

Tenenti's remarks came, two days after rising tensions on Lebanon's southern border, as an excavator from the Israeli side, crossed the demarcation line between the two countries, prompting the Lebanese army to halt Israeli military engineering work.

The border has been mostly quiet since Israel fought a 2006 war against Hezbollah, except for some tensions on the border, caused by Palestinian factions in Lebanon, occasionally firing on Israel in the past, and Israeli bombardments of the Labenese border.– NNN-NNA
