The Israeli military is constructing a barbed wire fence near the border with Lebanon to prevent protests south of the country from spilling over.
Israeli forces have been working for some time on building a new fence, with the help of a crane, in the settlement opposite to the border Lebanese village of Khiam, the National News Agency reported on Wednesday.
The fence is the outcome of Israeli concerns about potential infiltration from Lebanon into the Israeli settlement by protesters, through the border, as recurrent demonstrations against Israeli attacks on Palestinians continue to take place on the Lebanese side.
