After initial media reports indicated that roadways were sealed and residents in towns adjacent to the border with Lebanon were told to stay in their homes, authorities confirmed on Wednesday evening that there was no sign of infiltration by terrorists.

All roadways have been opened and authorities declared that there was no sign of suspicious activity in the area.

Security forces have been on high alert in the area just days after a suspected Israeli aerial strike on a convoy driving in the Syrian-controlled area of the Golan Heights killed senior Hezbollah and Iranian military officials.

Hezbollah and its allies have pledged to respond to the attack, which Israel has not confirmed.
