A group of 15 Lebanese civilians carrying Lebanese and Hizbullah flags crossed into Israel on Friday night, according to the IDF. The group, which included several children, entered Israel via the northern border with Lebanon where there is no border fence, and returned to the Lebanese side of the border after several minutes. IDF troops spotted the group, and seeing that it was unarmed, took no action. Nonetheless, the army stressed that the incident was a violation of UNSC Resolution 1701.
