Fatmah Gate, Lebanon Southern Borders with Israel | May 2, 2012
Israeli workers and bulldozers could be seen along the borders with Lebanon on Wednesday, May 2, as they continued the construction of a security wall between the two countries.
The wall is intended to protect the city of Metulla from any attacks or sniper fire coming from the Lebanese bordering town of Kfar Kila.
Israel began construction of the wall Monday and it will run several kilometers along its borders with Lebanon.
The wall’s construction is expected to continue for several weeks and it is being done in coordination with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the Lebanese army as well according to reports.
Although they are not fighting, Israel and Lebanon are considered in a state of war and military officers of both sides regularly meet under the auspices of the UNIFIL to coordinate security along their joint borders.
