Belgium has around 150 soldiers in Lebanon, most of whom are on mine clearance duties.
On Tuesday, a dispute over a tree on the Lebanese - Israeli border ended in the deaths of three Lebanese soldiers, a Lebanese journalist and an Israeli Army officer.
The fighting was just thirteen kilometres from the Belgian Army’s base in the Southern Lebanese town of Tibnin.
Although the Belgian troops were not in any danger during Tuesday’s incident, it was decided to stop the mine clearance operation temporarily..
The Belgians resumed their duties just before noon on Wednesday.
