Clashes erupted on Friday between demonstrators and the Israeli army in the towns of Kafr Shuba and Al-Arqoub, located on the southern border of Lebanon, according to reports.
Lebanese protesters voiced their opposition to the Israeli occupation’s demolition of their land, leading to confrontations with Israeli forces.
The Israeli army reportedly responded by deploying smoke bombs against the demonstrators near the Kafr Shuba border crossing.
The protests were organised in support of Ismail Nasser, a shepherd who had attempted to prevent the destruction of his land by an Israeli bulldozer on Wednesday.
In response to the escalating tensions, the Lebanese army and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) intervened to de-escalate the situation.
During the clashes, the protesters also threw stones at Israeli army troops stationed at the northern border.
Lebanon has frequently accused Israel of violating its airspace and territorial waters, lodging multiple complaints with the United Nations regarding these alleged violations.
