BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:25 P.M.) – A number of Lebanese civilians were pictured this week holding a picnic near the United Nations’ “blue line”, while Israeli troops overlooked the area.
The Lebanese civilians could be seen smoking their hookah pipe and sharing food in Mays Al-Jabal as Israeli soldiers looked on from the border:

Last week, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) launched “Operation Northern Shield” along the Lebanese border.
The primary objective of this operation is to destroy Hezbollah’s alleged tunnels that stretch as far south as the Upper Galilee region.
