( Israeli troops shot at a group of armed and unidentified individuals who infiltrated into Israel from Lebanon on Sunday. One of the individuals was wounded, and the entire group then fled back to Lebanon.

The IDF said in a statement that it "will continue to safeguard the State of Israel’s sovereignty in the border region."

"As soon as the Blue Line (the U.N.-demarcated border between Israel and Lebanon) is breached, it does not matter who penetrated it,” an Israeli military official said, according to Israel Hayom.
