A Lebanese man detained by Israeli civilians near the border town of Margaliot has been arrested by troops, the military says.

The unarmed man is being questioned at the scene, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Last night, troops fired warning shots into the air after a suspect approached the border fence near the same town, the IDF said.

It is not immediately clear if it is the same suspect.
