Lebanon says troops mobilized to face off against Israeli tanks

Lebanon’s official National News Agency reports that Lebanese Army soldiers were mobilized after “Israeli enemy infantry troops, backed by two Merkava tanks, … crossed the technical fence.”

Video of the standoff shows two troops, armed with RPGs, several meters away from tanks, with UN Blue Helmets waving UNIFIL flags in between

Channel 12 news reports that the tanks were sent across the fence as a show of control over the Israeli enclave on the other side of the barrier, but have since crossed back.
