The terrorist group Hezbollah released on its social media, information stating that he was arrested in the city of Tyre and is said to be an American Jew.Allegedly, he attempted to cross over into Lebanon via the village of Ayta ash Shab, the same village from which a Hezbollah unit attacked IDF forces and starting the Second Lebanon War in 2006.IDF forces canvassed the norther border on Tuesday using helicopters, and Lebanese army forces and Hezbollah units searched for the man on the Lebanese side of the border.It remains unclear what motivated him to cross into Lebanon.
