A meeting between representatives from the IDF, the UN Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), and the Lebanese army on the shooting incident that took place on the border between Israel and Lebanon Tuesday ended Wednesday night.
The head of the Strategic Department in the IDF Planning Branch, Brig. Gen. Yossi Hyman, represented Israel in the meeting. He stressed the legitimacy of the IDF's operations in the area and the fact that the Lebanese troops had fired first, without reason. UNIFIL said it would present the conclusions of its probe on the incident in a few weeks. (Hanan Greenberg)
