Israeli forces bulldozing past 'withdrawal line' in South Lebanon
Al Mayadeen's correspondent confirms that the residents of Kfarchouba are currently standing up to occupation forces in the area.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent in southern Lebanon reported that the Israeli occupation forces are bulldozing past what is referred to as the "withdrawal line," in the occupied Kfarchouba area in South Lebanon.
Our correspondent confirmed that people from the area are trying to confront the occupation forces' violations, indicating that a protest will take place on Friday.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent also indicated that UNIFIL peacekeepers are deployed in the area and are recording the occupation forces' breach of "the withdrawal line," while observers explained that the occupation forces' establishment of trenches at the border is to try to prevent "any crossing" toward occupied Palestine.
Lebanese journalists captured the occupation soldiers on film as they installed metal wires near the withdrawal line to prevent shepherds and farmers from crossing into the occupied territories.

This comes after the occupied Lebanese village of Kfarchouba witnessed confrontations between occupation forces and residents who prevented the Israeli occupation forces from crossing the "withdrawal line" and bulldozing lands to install stone blocks.
In turn, the Lebanese army and UNIFIL forces mobilized their forces, while an Israeli tank accompanied the bulldozer, which was forced to retreat and finish the work from behind the withdrawal line, accompanied by Israeli soldiers who gathered behind a hill overlooking the area.
For his part, Lebanese farmer, Ismail Nasser, from the town of Kfarchouba, told Al Mayadeen, "The resistance is our honor and we stand by it," noting that the Lebanese have "a strength represented by the people, the army and the resistance."
Nasser, who was shown confronting the Zionist bulldozer with just his body, standing steadfast in the face of the Israeli armored bulldozer, added, "we will not abandon (Palestine) it and leave it to Israel."
