    The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the presence of armed Lebanese military personnel is not unusual during Israeli patrols in Lebanon's territory.
    Witnesses said the incident was documented by a photographer affiliated with the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group. Lebanese civilians, suspected to be undercover Hezbollah operatives, were also seen in the area at the time of the incident.
