IDF bulldozer covers Lebanese civilian with sand near border (use under section 27A of the Copyright Law)
An unarmed Lebanese civilian who arrived Wednesday night at the IDF activity area in Har Dov, near the border with Lebanon, burst into Israeli territory and stood in front of an IDF bulldozer working in the area and interfered with his work. The bulldozer commander decided to continue his mission, but the Lebanese civilian threw stones at him and tried to sabotage the tools. After briefly suspending the trip and waiting for UN UNIFIL soldiers, the driver continued his work and the Lebanese citizen, who refused to move away, was covered in sand.
Sources in the Northern Command praised the driver for his actions and said that he acted with resourcefulness and determination to carry out the engineering activity he embarked on.
The purpose of the engineering activity in the area is the construction of trenches near the border line, in Israeli territory, as an obstacle that will delay and even prevent the passage of vehicles and infantry from Lebanese territory into Israeli territory.

Tensions on the Lebanese border are increasing, and only two weeks ago the Radwan Force, Hezbollah's elite unit, carried out two showcase exercises, in which it displayed operational capabilities using a variety of weapons and capabilities to penetrate Israeli territory. The IDF attributes this to the pressure and tension in which the organization finds itself, fearing that Israel will attack Lebanon by surprise.
