Israelis to be allowed to visit Ghajar on Lebanese border

Israelis will be allowed to visit the village of Ghajar which is located both within Israeli and Lebanese territory, the IDF's Northern Command commander Amir Baram announced on Wednesday.

After the IDF withdrew from Lebanon in 2000, the UN decided that the border between Lebanon and Israel crosses through the middle of the village, meaning that while the residents have Israeli citizenship, some of them are living in Lebanese territory.
