The Lebanese army "has forced the IDF to mend two additional sections of the border fence along the Blue Line separating the two countries at Mis al-Jabal, and to move the fence back," according to a report in Lebanese media cited by The Jerusalem Post's sister publication Maariv.

The IDF has ceased its anti-tunnel operations in the area of Krum al-Shiraki near Mis al-Jabal, according to the report.

Tensions in the north continue to increase. Photographs published on Monday showed Lebanese and IDF soldiers with weapons drawn as UN observers stood nearby, as a Lebanese officers argued with the IDF over the placement of the fence. The argument did not escalate to a violent confrontation between the two sides.
