Israel building wall along Lebanese border?

Lebanon's Naharnet cites an Agence France Press report that claims that Israel is building a wall along its border with Lebanon.
The Israeli military on Monday began building a wall that will run several kilometers along part of its border with Lebanon, a military spokeswoman told Agence France Presse.

"This construction, which began on Monday, is being carried out in coordination with UNIFIL (the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) and the Lebanese army. The wall is intended to avoid frictions on the border," she said.

Israeli public radio said the wall would be several meters high and intended to protect the Israeli border town of Metulla from fire coming from the Lebanese side. It is expected to take several weeks to build.

Israel's military announced the project in January, saying it would protect recently-constructed apartment blocks in Metulla from sniper fire coming from the Lebanese border town of Kfar Kila.
Hmmm. It sounds like we will soon be walled in on all sides.

Meanwhile. . . . Israel starts building wall on Lebanon border. Walls have proven to protect Israel against the daily Arabian artillery bombardments. Let's build more of them! Great Wall Of China Clone.
