The Israeli Military Is Firing Tear Gas At People In South Lebanon

Israeli forces are firing tear gas at people in southern Lebanon, according to the National News Agency (NNA).

At around 6:40 PM on Tuesday, the Israeli military began to launch tear gas and smoke grenades toward crowds near the southern Lebanese border, in the village of Adaisseh, according to the NNA.

As of the time of writing, Israeli forces have launched 4 such projectiles, causing several cases of suffocation among civilians on the Lebanese side.

Adaisseh is located close to the Blue Line, opposite to the Israeli Misgav Am settlement.

Protests and rallies along the southern Lebanese border recently grew more frequent following the eruption of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that lasted between 6 and 21 May.

In an attempt to block such activity and prevent potential infiltration attempts, Israel began to construct a new barbed wire fence near the border with Lebanon last week.

The Tuesday border gathering comes as Lebanon marks Liberation Day, a commemoration of the withdrawal of the Israeli military from southern Lebanon on May 25, 2000.
