Israeli bulldozers started landscaping activities along the Blue Line near the Lebanese towns of Alma Al-Shaab and Al-Duhaira, Hezbollah TV channel al-Manar correspondent Ali Chaeib reported on Thursday.
In a tweet, Chaeib said the bulldozers are between the technical fence and the Blue Line and "protected by Merkava tanks."
Chaeib added that the Lebanese Army and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) were deployed in the area. One of the bulldozers violated the Blue Line, crossing "five meters" into Lebanese territory.
However, UNIFIL's spokesperson told L'Orient Today that no violation has yet been recorded.
Moreover, a Lebanese Army spokesperson told L'Orient Today that the army is following up on the situation.
Tensions have risen at the Lebanese-Israeli borders this past summer. Hezbollah set up tents near the disputed village of Ghajar, Israeli forces launched rockets toward Lebanon after mortar fire from the Lebanese side, and a handful of Lebanese MPs and journalists were targeted by Israeli teargas along the border.
