(NEWS) IDF, Lebanese Forces Exchange Fire On Northern Border

"Lebanese President calls on country to 'stand up to Israel's violation;' reports say IDF soldiers attempted to uproot tree on Lebanon side of border, 2 Lebanese wounded.

Israeli and Lebanese forces clashed along the northern border Tuesday. Lebanese reports said the conflict began when an IDF patrol attempted to uproot a tree on the Lebanese side of the border. Israeli artillery fired on Lebanese positions, and two Lebanese soldiers were reported wounded in the incident.

Initial Israeli reports had said the soldiers were on a routine patrol, operating past the border fence, but within Israeli territory, since the fence does not always exactly parallel the border."
