    "Remember that female soldier who got close to the fence? She's the one who was exchanged in the prisoner deal with Syria," he wrote.
    That period saw a peak in tensions between the IDF and Hezbollah, with the Iranian proxy prepared for a retaliatory attack in revenge for the death of one of its militants in a Damascus airstrike attributed to Israel in July.
    At the time, IDF soldiers were told not to get too close to the border fence in order to not "make targets" for Hezbollah.
    The woman's appearance probably made the Shi'ite militants believe she was a soldier in civilian clothes, as part of an intelligence mission or a ruse to spur them to attack.
    According to reports, Hezbollah did not open fire on her for fear she was actually a civilian.
    Sources told Ynet that an IDF officer spotted the woman and told her to drive away from the area for her own safety.
