UN peacekeepers on Wednesday asked the IDF to pull down a new barbed-wire barrier that Lebanon said encroached on its territory, a UN spokesman said. Alexander Ivanko, a spokesman for the UNIFIL peacekeeping force, said new wire coils were put up in Lebanese territory between the northern Israeli village of Metulla and Kfar Kila, a town in southern Lebanon.
