The Lebanese Armed Forces issued a statement Sunday claiming that four IDF vehicles approached southern-Lebanon's Ayta Shaab and tossed two tear gas bombs over the fence, according to the Lebanese National News Agency.

The report said that three LAF soldiers suffered from shortness of breath and respiratory problems, a result of the gas bomb's leaking gas and smoke.

LAF filed a complaint with UNIFIL.

The IDF spokesperson said that the IDF "does not regard foreign reports," when asked about the incident.
