Two suspects tried to infiltrate into Israel from Lebanon and soon turned back, the IDF’s Spokesperson’s Unit said on Tuesday evening.
The two were spotted walking near the Lebanese border by soldiers from an IDF observation post. One of them managed to cross the border, but soon turned around and went back into Lebanon.
IDF forces, who immediately came to the scene, spotted them and shot to the air as part of the procedure in such cases.
The soldiers at the observation post were in eye contact with the suspects as they went back to Lebanon, the IDF said.
It added that IDF forces then scanned the area to check if there were more infiltrations, but did not find evidence for that.
