The Israeli army opened fire on a Lebanese military base in the area of Mountazahat in Wazzani on Monday morning, reports said on Monday.
According to these reports, at around 7:00 am, an Israeli patrol opened machine gunfire from the other side of the border on the Lebanese army which retaliated. The exchange of fire continued for several minutes.
The incident led to a state of alert among Lebanese army and UNIFIL troops in the area.
However, the Israeli military accused a Lebanese soldier of opening fire on Israeli troops carrying out work on a border fence. Lebanon said Israeli troops infiltrated the Lebanese territories. Lebanon dened earlier reports about the killing of one soldier.
