Lebanon: Israel's begins construction on contentious border wall

The Israel state has commenced the construction of a border wall at its northern border with Lebanon, footage showed from Naqoura on Thursday. Heavy machinery was being employed to put up the building blocks brought in by trucks along the border, formerly marked by a fence. The operation was overseen by Israeli forces and reporters. Lebanon has slammed the operation calling it an intrusion of... Еще its territory and an act of aggression, accusing Israel of threatening the border stability. Israel has since denied the allegations stating the wall runs entirely on its side of the UN-recognised border. On Wednesday, the secretary-general of Lebanon’s Higher Defense Council said in a statement, “This wall, if it is built, will be considered an assault on Lebanese land” after a meeting with Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri and other high-ranking officials. On Tuesday, Aoun, al-Hariri and parliament speaker Nabih Berri talked about taking active measures to prevent Israel from constructing its border wall.
