IDF: Journalists were tipped off

It appears that prior to the skirmish at the Israel-Lebanon border this week, which has tensions on both sides heightened, journalists in the area were briefed that the Lebanese intended to ambush the Israeli troops who were trimming trees and bushes for security purposes.  This maintenance had been coordinated with UNIFIL and was done on the internationally recognized Israeli side of the Blue Line designating the border.
Journalists and photographers were briefed in advance of the intention to ambush IDF troops and were therefore present at the site of Tuesday's deadly clash between Israeli and Lebanese forces, IDF officials charge.
