IDF troops in standoff with armed fighters on Lebanon border

The IDF has had a run-in with apparent Hezbollah fighters during operations along the Lebanon border.

Israeli troops and a tank working on the Israeli side of the Blue Line, but outside a security fence, faced off with two men armed with rifles and a rocket propelled grenade, according to Channel 12 news.

Pictures from the scene show troops and UN peacekeepers in the area.

No shots are fired and no injuries are reported.

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