IDF spotters observed the terrorists in the midst of the infiltration attempt and called combat soldiers to the scene. The soldiers opened fire on the terrorists, who fled back into Lebanese territory.

No casualties occurred on the Israeli side, the IDF confirmed.

Earlier, the IDF had confirmed that a security incident had occurred in the area of Har Dov near the Lebanese border.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was informed of the security incident in the middle of the weekly Likud faction meeting. The prime minister left the faction meeting early to meet with security officials to monitor the incident, telling the Likud members that a “serious security incident” was underway.

Residents were instructed to remain in their homes for the duration of the fighting.

In a possible attempt for Hezbollah to save face and prevent escalation that may lead to a full scale war, far more damaging than the Second Lebanon War that lasted from Jul 12, 2006 until Aug 14, 2006, Hezbollah has claimed the entire event was an Israeli fabrication.

Hezbollah’s leader Hasan Nasrallah has a good reason to downscale and retreat from further escalation. Unlike in 2006, when IDF targets were exclusively focused on Hezbollah operatives and terror platforms, Hezbollah is now a major faction of the Lebanese government, making all of Lebanon vulnerable to Israeli reprisals.

Here is more from Arutz Sheva:


The Hezbollah terrorist organization denied that three of its members attempted to infiltrate Israeli territory from Lebanon Monday.

“It appears that a state of terror is gripping the Israeli army and its settlers on the Lebanese border. Their a high level of alert and extreme fear of Hezbollah’s reaction to enemy’s crime of killing Ali Mohsen, combined with their inability to discern the resistance’s intentions, have all led Israel to react nervously in the field,” Hezbollah said in a statement.

“Everything claimed by Israeli media outlets about the foiling of a Hezbollah infiltration attempt from Lebanon into Israel, Hezbollah dead or wounded, is entirely incorrect, and is an attempt to invent false, fictional victories,” the terrorist organization said.

“The Islamic Resistance confirms no clash or exchange of fire occurred on its end during today’s incidents until this moment. Instead, it all came from one side, that of the fearful, worried, and nervous Israeli enemy.

“Our response to the martyrdom of Ali Kamel Mohsen, who was killed in Zionist aggression near the Damascus airport, is definitely coming, and the Zionists need only to remain waiting for the punishment for their crimes.

“Likewise, the Israeli shelling that occurred today on the village of Al-Habariyah, which caused damage to a civilian’s house, will not pass quietly.”
