Israel’s northern border represents one of the key security flashpoints for the country. The site of several wars and skirmishes, this critical line represents a key defense system against threats from Lebanon, Syria and further east. At the same time, it offers some of the most beautiful views and landscapes in Israel.
In this EDI Extra we will take you on a jeep tour along the border in an area usually inaccessible to civilians. We will have lunch with IDF soldiers at a military outpost, visit the “Good Fence” that once represented a gateway to better relations with our Lebanese neighbors, and look out over the fields and villages of Lebanon to learn about security issues facing Israel today, and more.
