The Israeli military placed a large warning banner on the border with Lebanon, the National News Agency reported on Friday.
An Israeli force raised a banner inside the barbed wire fence near the southern Lebanese border village of Meiss El-Jabal on Friday afternoon.
Printed on the banner is the popular Arabic adage that’s commonly used in Lebanon: “He whose house is made of glass does not throw stones at people.”
Commonly, the adage is used to convey a message to a person whose vulnerabilities and weaknesses (glass house) are exposed to the world, warning them not to provoke others.
The banner also has several images printed on it, the clearest of which shows people in civilian clothing standing in an open field.
Though it’s unclear what directly inspired this particular warning, it comes a week after Lebanon‘s beaches were polluted by an oil spill that originated off its shores.
It also comes a few days after the Israeli military detained a 25-year-old Lebanese man who was accused of crossing the border from South Lebanon.
