Jerusalem, 28 February, 2021 (TPS) -- IDF forces arrested a suspect who crossed from Lebanon into Israeli territory, the military stated Sunday.

IDF observation posts identified on Saturday night a suspect who crossed from Lebanon into Israeli territory in the Har Dov area.

IDF forces immediately arrived at the scene and arrested the suspect who was transferred for questioning by security forces.

The Har Dov has been the site of multiple Hezbollah attacks over the years.

IDF troops stationed on Israel’s border with Lebanon captured and arrested a Lebanese man who intentionally crossed into Israeli territory in mid-January, apparently acting as a scout for the Hezbollah terror organization.

The man, a shepherd, intentionally crossed the Blue Line from Lebanon into Israeli territory in the Har Dov area.

The suspect was transferred to security forces for further questioning.
