But again, this is self defence. Obviously this was done in order to ensure visual surveillance and legitimately so. Especially, if this is Israeli land, and it will not be hard to document that one way or the other, the Lebanese conduct is wanton, reckless and barberous. If Lebanon is of good faith and wants to avoid this, and the same is true of Israel, there needs to be some agreement to move fences onto the border. Of course, there are strategic reasons for not doing so, which both benefit and burden both countries. In this incident we see the risk or downside of not having the fence on the border.
