UNIFIL and IDF clash 23th of July 1990

Confrontation in Southern Lebanon, between on one side the following elements of UNIFIL, APC platoon/Coy A/NORBATT XXV, UNIFIL Force Mobile Reserve (FMR) and lastly one bulldozer from SVEDENGCOY, & on the other elements of the Israeli defence forces (IDF), that took place on the 23th of July 1990. The item of dispute was a new road to the IDF position PV-68 (UNIFIL designation), near the South Lebanese village of Kaokaba, that the IDF wanted to build a bit further away from the Litani river than the allready existing access road to PV-68.

On the part of IDF, I guess they hoped the new road would make the approach to PV-68 less exposed to ambushes with what nowdays are termed IEDs, but back then were just called "roadside bombs".

In the end UNIFIL had to back off, when IDF threatened with opening fire against UN forces if the didn't back down. Unfortunately for IDF/DFF this new road also later were targeted with IEDs by AE on several occasions.
