Maj. Gen. Eisencott described the incident, the most serious since the end of the 2006 war with Hizballah, as follows: At around noon Tuesday, Israeli forces were cutting down small trees near Kibbutz Misgav Am on our side of the border. "Their officers were watching the work from a forward command post 200-300 meters behind the border when all of a sudden Lebanese forces suddenly started shooting without any sort of provocation."
