The IDF has had a run-in with apparent Hezbollah terrorists during operations along the Lebanon border on Tuesday afternoon, according to a Channel 12 report.

According to the report, the IDF troops and a tank working on the Israeli side of the Blue Line faced off with two men armed with rifles and an RPG.

Pictures from the scene showed IDF troops and U.N. peacekeepers in the area.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Earlier in the day, Israel transferred a Syrian man, who had crossed the northern border and been shot last month, back into Lebanon.


The man entered Israel on May 17 and was wounded by IDF fire in the Mount Dov area. He was returned to the Red Cross through the Rosh Hanikrah crossing.
