During the last week, Israel filed two complaints on account of two disturbances, which occurred last Friday and on Wednesday (27.7), in which Lebanese citizens were throwing stones into Israel near the Lebanese border fence. In these disturbances, two soldiers were lightly wounded and evacuated to receive medical care at a hospital.
During the last week, Israel filed 27 additional complaints due to disturbances originating from Lebanese territory. These complaints add to 172 previous complaints filed to the U.N on this matter.
In the course of the daily disturbances, citizens are hurling stones and metal pikes towards IDF forces as well as towards military and civilian structures on the Israel-Lebanon border.
The incidents at the border are disrupting the daily life of the residents of northern Israel and their ability to work in the area, they are also hampering works towards the completion of a new border fence.
These incidents are disrupting the delicate stability which exists along the border and emphasizes the need for a quick deployment of UNIFIL and Lebanese Army forces in the area.
