BEIRUT: Israeli troops committed a violation of the U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701 by crossing the Blue Line in south Lebanon, the Lebanese Army said Wednesday.

In a statement, the Army said a group of eight Israeli soldiers crossed the Blue Line at 7:22 a.m. in Mais al-Jabal, walked 20 meters into Lebanese territory and retreated nearly an hour later.

The violation prompted the Army as well as U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon to deploy, it added.

Israel’s most recent violation of the Blue Line, a U.N. border demarcation separating Lebanon and Israel, was in July in the border area of Houla.
