Dozens of southern Lebanese citizens crossed the “blue line” international border into northern Israel during the day on Saturday.
The attempted infiltration took place near the village of Mais el-Jabal.
They were stopped by Israel Defense Forces, who used smoke bombs and tear gas to disperse the crowd. No injuries were reported.
Israel’s security fence along the border is actually a few meters back from the international border, and no one managed to breach the security fence.
According to a report broadcast by a Hezbollah-linked television station, the protesters gathered “to protest the spying and photography in the area by Israel.” The report alleged that Lebanese parliamentarians also participated.
There’s been no comment from the IDF.
