Shots were heard on Thursday evening near the isolated community of Dovev, near Bar'am on the Lebanese border. IDF forces were scrambled to the scene due to concerns that the shots heard may indicate a terror infiltration from Lebanon. Security coordinaters in border communities from Mt. Hermon in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west were alerted. IDF forces heading to the scene included IAF helicopters and infantry troops. Defense officials have expressed concern in the past weeks over increased Hizbullah activities on the border.
