The Lebanese army and United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon  went on high alert on noon Tuesday over an Israeli request to cut down five trees planted on Monday by the Iranians  as  part of aid to  Lebanon, according to newspaper reports.

Israel said that it wanted to cut down the trees, that are in Lebanese territory, because they are touching the dividing line on the border.

The army soon cut down the trees that lie a few meters from the electronic fence. Naharnet
