Israel has resumed the construction of a controversial cement separation wall between Lebanon's southern border and occupied Palestine amid tight Lebanese and Israeli security measures, the National News Agency reported Monday.

The construction was taking place on “non-conflict” border zones near Kfarkila-Oudaish highway in Marjayoun.

On Sunday, Israel had placed 24 cement blocks, each 6m long and 1.2m wide.

It stopped building works in the afternoon before resuming it Monday.

New threats emerged between Lebanon and Israel over several issues, including the wall the Jewish state is building along the border that Beirut says may jut into Lebanese territories, as well as plans for oil and gas exploration in the Mediterranean.
