The IDF is planning on building new security infrastructure along the the northern border, in coordination with UNIFIL and the Lebanese armed forces.

The move will be made "in order to improve the security situation in the region and to reduce tension," the IDF Spokesman's Office stated on Monday.

According to Israel Radio, the IDF is building a new security wall along the Lebanese border in the Metula region. The wall will be more than a kilometer long and a few meters high. The purpose of the wall is to prevent gun fire on the city of Metula from Lebanese villages.

The building of the wall is expected to last weeks, according to Israel Radio.
