UNIFIL released its findings Wednesday of its investigation into the shooting incident earlier this month between the IDF and Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) along the northern border, which ended in the death of IDF reserve battalion commander Lt.-Col. Dov Harari.

UNIFIL said Wednesday that the findings of the investigation confirmed the peace keeping forces' preliminary conclusion that the Israeli forces did not cross the Blue Line international border as the Lebanese had claimed to justify their decision to open fire at Harari and soldiers from his battalion.The incident took place August third as Harari's unit was working to cut down a tree on the the northern side of the border fence, but still within Israeli sovereign territory.
