Israeli forces fired tear gas grenades and stun grenades at Lebanese army forces near the Israeli-Lebanese border after part of an engineering vehicle belonging to the Lebanese army crossed into Israeli territory in the area of Mount Dov on Saturday afternoon.
The IDF reported the incident and stated that the vehicle retreated to Lebanese territory. Army Radio reported that the IDF bolstered its troops and moved a tank into position as soon as the incident was detected.
