BEIRUT: The Lebanese and Israeli armies met under UNIFIL Wednesday to discuss a range of issues, including water-related issues in Blida and Wazzani in south Lebanon.

UNIFIL Commander Maj. Gen. Paolo Serra presided over the tripartite meeting that gathered officers from the Lebanese and Israeli armies, in separate rooms.

The Daily Star has learned that the meeting was devoted to discussing the issue of a sealed well in Blida that has been cut off from the small village by the Blue Line and Israel’s refusal to allow the clearing of rocks at a tourist site near Wazzani beside the Hasbani River, which flows into Israel.

Owners of the tourist site want to clear rocks washed down the river by the winter rains that are blocking part of the channel, something that requires the use of heavy machinery as well as access to both sides of the river.
