"The Lebanese army insisted on the position of the Lebanese government, which protects the Lebanese sovereignty on the ground, at sea and oil fields. The violations of [the Lebanese] airspace, marine and land borders by rival Israel and regular provocations are unacceptable. [We] made a demand to stop that. Once again [we] demanded the withdrawal [of Israeli forces] from the Shebaa farms, Kfarchouba heights and the occupied part of the al-Ghajar settlement," the Lebanese Armed Forces said.
Earlier in the day, the UNIFIL said that participants of the trilateral meeting had discussed the situation around the Israeli operation against tunnels of the Hezbollah Shia movement.
On Tuesday, the Israel Armed Forces announced the launch of operation dubbed Northern Shield aimed at destroying the trans-boundary tunnels dug by the Hezbollah movement to secretly transfer its militants to Israel.
