Zionist regime’s troops deploy heavily near Lebanon

Zionist regime’s troops deploy heavily near Lebanon
The Zionist regime’s army has heavily deployed troops and equipment along the Lebanese border and stepped up military activities there, a report from Beirut says.

For the second day on Wednesday, Zionist troops fired tear gas canisters at Lebanese herders and farmers working near the border with the occupied Palestinian territories, The Daily Star reported.

“We were proceeding with our lives normally and everyone was working their land. Then we saw the Israeli patrol and its members begin shooting tear gas at us,” Mustafa Ahmad, one of the herders, said.

Residents said the Zionist army repeatedly shot tear gas canisters during the morning. Hours later, a large number of Israeli troops were stationed in an Israeli settlement across the Lebanese village of Kfar Kila.

According to witness accounts, Zionist troops used trees and shrubs for cover and monitored the movements within Lebanon as motorized patrols were conducted.

Local sources say Israeli patrols along the border have increased in the past week, with soldiers taking up ambush positions in the area.

The activities have sparked fears among local residents, who question the motives behind Zionist regime’s latest transgression, The Daily Star said.
