Israel carries out ground incursion into Lebanon

Eleven Israeli soldiers carried out a ground incursion into Lebanon Wednesday morning, breaking the border's barbed wire fence near the village of Wazzani and mounting a sandbag barrier roughly 15 meters past the demarcation line.
The soldiers reached a Lebanese military zone, Lebanon's National News Agency reported.
Ground and air incursions into Lebanon are direct breaches of UN resolution 1701 which ended Israel's war on Lebanon in 2006. Israel has carried out more than 20,000 illegal surveillance flights over Lebanon since that ceasefire.
The Lebanese Army and the UN's international peacekeeping force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, are on high alert.
