Adaisseh

Adaisseh (Arabic: العديسة‎‎ / BGN: Aadaïssé / ISO 233: Al `Udaysah; also Adessé; Odeissé and other spellings) is a village in South Lebanon. It is located close to the Blue Line border with Israel, near the Israeli kibbutz Misgav Am.[1]

History[edit]

The village was the site of the 2010 Adaisseh incident, when Israeli and Lebanese forces engaged in cross-border combat. Some Israeli shells hit the village during the fighting.
