A Lebanese journalist with the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar station films himself within touching distance of an Israel Defense Forces tank on the border.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, the tank was at the site to protect Defense Ministry workers erecting a new border barricade at the site.

“Face to face with an Israeli tank,” writes Ali Shoeib in the post.

Soldiers from the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) can be seen in the video standing by without intervening.

Israel and Lebanon do not have a formal border due to territorial disputes; however, they largely abide by the United Nations-recognized Blue Line between the two countries.

The Blue Line is marked with blue barrels along the border and is several meters from the Israeli fence in some areas, which is built entirely within Israeli territory.

The IDF has been working on a new border wall with Lebanon to replace an aging fence in the area. The engineering work, which typically takes place to the north of Israel’s fence but within Israeli territory, has sparked several minor clashes on the border in recent months.
