Army tells farmers to keep away from Lebanon border

The IDF has instructed farmers to limit their activity near the border with Lebanon, just days after a senior Hezbollah commander was assassinated in Syria and rockets fired from Lebanon landed in northern Israel.

Soldiers operating along the northern border have been instructed to wear helmets and bulletproof vests to protect themselves against possible sniping from across the border.

Hezbollah vowed revenge for the assassination of Samir Kuntar on Sunday, which it claimed was carried out by Israel.
