Israeli soldiers fire on suspicious movement near Lebanese border

The IDF reported that soldiers on guard on the Israeli-Lebanese border saw three suspicious figures advancing towards them on Saturday under cover of the cloudy, rainy weather. They opened fire as ordered and the figures took to their heels. The Lebanese News Agency NNA offered this version: “The soldiers of hostile Israel opened fire into the air after being stationed near the Blue Line in the Qurum al-Sharqi area east of Meiss ej Jabal,” the Lebanese news agency said. The troops were said to have opened fire over a vehicle belonging to the Lebanese Army which was performing a routine patrol in the border area in conditions of heavy fog.” DEBKAfile: This Lebanese village is situated opposite an IDF outpost on Ramim Ridge near Kibbutz Manara. It is possible that another cross-border tunnel has its starting point at Meiss ej-Jabal.

    But were the ” three suspicious figures” on the Lebanon side of the border or on the Israeli side?

    If you are saying that any movement on the other side of the boarder can be fired on then of cause the same will need to be applied to the Israeli side is just Common Sense lol

    I’m sure Hezbollah would be ok with that arrangement, 50cal sniper rifle to plink IDF or anti-tank rocket for a bit more bang…

    Now if it was on the Israeli side then its a whole different matter
