(JTA)—The U.N peacekeeping force in Lebanon wants to clearly mark the border between Israel and Lebanon after a deadly clash.
On Aug. 3, the Lebanese army fired Israeli troops attempting to prune a tree both countries claimed was in their territory. Israeli troops returned fire. The United Nations subsequently determined that the tree was in Israel. An Israeli officer, two Lebanese soldiers and a Lebanese journalist were killed.
Israel built a fence to designate the border between the two countries. It deviates slightly from the U.N.-approved line in places.
