IDF troops crossed the barrier fence near the village of Ghajar Thursday morning, Channel 10 quoted Lebanese sources as saying.

According to the report, 17 IDF soldiers encamped on a hill overlooking the southern Lebanese border.

Hizbullah's TV station Al-Manar reported that Lebanon has heightened its security alert level following the Israeli maneuver.

The IDF said that the exercise was merely routine, stressing that the troops crossed the barrier fence but not the internationally-recognized Israeli-Lebanese border.
