Lebanese sources claimed Sunday that IDF soldiers carrying out a training exercise on the border, "almost killed" a Lebanese citizen whose vehicle was struck with a stray bullet.

Lebanon's National News Agency reported that a stray IDF bullet struck the windshield of a vehicle driving in Ramia, in the district of Bint Jbeil. The driver escaped unscathed, according to the report.

The IDF Spokesperson said on Sunday that no shots were intentionally fired in the direction towards Lebanon, but the IDF was checking the possibility of a stray bullet.
