The IDF on Saturday rejected Lebanese claims that a security fence Israel is putting up on the border between the two countries near the Israeli town of Metulla violates Lebanon's sovereign territory.

The IDF stated that the work on the fence was being coordinated with the UN forces stationed in southern Lebanon.
