Frequent tripartite talks between Lebanon and Israel, mediated by U.N. peacekeepers at the southern border, have decreased tensions after a recent flare-up, the force's spokesperson said Thursday.Tenenti did not say the meetings were happening on "almost on a daily basis," as Reuters news agency reported Thursday, instead, saying they were "very frequent".Tensions mounted in Lebanon at the end of January and throughout February over a controversial security wall Israel began constructing along the border that passes through a number of points Lebanon disputes. A Lebanese Army spokesperson told The Daily Star that it is "likely" meetings were being held on a near-daily basis and added that near-daily Israeli violations of Lebanese land, sea and air sovereignty were being discussed in the meetings.
