Several dozen Lebanese citizens, some of them armed, approached the Israeli border on Friday between Ghajar and Mount Dov waving Lebanese flags.

UNIFIL forces managed to disperse the crowd before it could get to the fence.The armed men appeared to be soldiers from the Lebanese army.



IDF sources told Army Radio that anyone who tries to approach or damage the border fence would likely be hurt by an Israeli military response.
