Immediately afterwards, the army filed a complaint with UNIFIL, saying the force was shot at without cause. The sources say the incident ended without any intent to escalate violence or dwell on the events.
Lebanese news agencies are claiming that the IDF force opened fire on a military base on the eastern side of the border. They say the exchanges of fire lasted a few minutes. A Lebanese radio station reported the exchanges occurred around 7 am. It added that UNIFIL soldiers are on the scene.
The incident was the first of its kind on the relatively calm front since Regiment Commander Dov Harari was killed on August 3, 2010. After the incident, the Lebanese army announced it would be more careful and attempt to refrain from causing additional incidents.
