IDF troops transferred control over a portion of the border to troops in Lebanon for the first time on Thursday, the army said. The IDF gave up control of a small area near Metulla, putting the Lebanese and international troops on the border for the first time. At the time of the cease-fire two weeks ago, IDF troops occupied a security zone 30 kilometers inside of Lebanon. It has been slowly transferring control of that zone to arriving Lebanese and UN troops since then.
