 Army Asks UNIFIL to Tell Israel to Stop Drilling near Kfarkila

The Lebanese Army on Monday asked the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) to tell Israeli forces to stop drilling works on the electronic border fence after they violated the U.N.-demarcated Blue Line and encroached on Lebanese territory, the National News Agency said.

Lebanese troops, UNIFIL peacekeepers and Israeli forces went on alert in the area of the Lebanese border town of Kfarkila during the standoff, NNA added.

Al-Mayadeen television later reported that the Israeli army had stopped the drilling.
