Beirut threatens to ‘confront’ Israel over possible wall on ‘Lebanese land’

Lebanon’s Higher Defense Council said Wednesday it had issued a directive to resist Israeli plans to build a border wall on Lebanese land, as military tension between the two former foes continues to mount.

"This wall, if it is built, will be considered an assault on Lebanese land," the secretary general of Lebanon's Higher Defense Council said in a statement after meeting senior government and military officials, as cited by Reuters.

The statement also said that the Higher Defense Council “has given its instructions to confront this aggression to prevent Israel from building [the wall] on Lebanese territory.” The council did not elaborate on how it intends to confront Israel.
