A UN spokesperson says that IDF troops have detained a Lebanese citizen near the border of Israel and Lebanon.
Yasmina Bouziane, a spokeswoman for the UN peacekeeping force known as UNIFIL, says the army informed peacekeepers that the individual was apprehended early Sunday near the divided border town of Ghajar.
She added that the IDF said the person had a large "quantity of illicit substances."
