Beirut, March 6 (Xinhua) Israeli forces Thursday penetrated the border in south Lebanon towards the Ghajar area overseeing Wazani river, but stopped short of crossing the UN demarcated “Blue Line”, Future TV reported. The report said the Israeli forces penetrated six km in the Mountazahat area in southern Lebanon.

Israel has set up an electrical fence to separate the borders between the two countries, local press said.

Following the Israeli withdrawal from south Lebanon in 2000, the UN drew a border line called “Blue Line”, but this line did not cover the disputed Shebaa farms.

Former Lebanese president Emile Lahoud rejected the “Blue Line”, and considered the step that violates Lebanon’s territories.
