The IDF says its tanks fired warning shots toward a number of rioters who crossed from Lebanon into Israeli territory.

The suspects sabotaged the border fence and set a fire in the area before returning to Lebanese territory, the military says.

There are no reports of injuries.

A handful of the protesters are seen waving Hezbollah flags.

The incident took place near the Israeli town of Metula.
