A Lebanese army sniper killed an Israeli soldier near the border fence near Rosh Hanikra on Sunday night.

An initial IDF assessment, based on data from lookout positions on the border, found shots were fired by a soldier from the Lebanese Armed Forces who apparently was acting alone. Six to seven shots were fired at the IDF soldier who was standing on a road adjacent to the electronic border fence with Lebanon.

“We are sending messages to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon regarding the severity of this incident. There is no indication that an infiltration into our territory occurred,” an army source said. “The IDF is prepared in the North,” he warned.
