Lebanese army soldiers were caught on camera on Tuesday, directing RPGs at Israeli tanks that were patrolling the area along Israel's border with Lebanon.
The incident apparently occurred in the Upper Galilee area near Kibbutz Misgav Am - outside Israel's border fence - during routine military activity, which was coordinated with UN's UNIFIL peacekeeping forces.
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.
Earlier on Tuesday, alternate prime minister and current defense minister, Benny Gantz toured the Northern front for the first time as defence minister - together with Chief of the General Staff - Lieutenant General Aviv Kochavi. Northern Command chief - Maj. Gen. Amir Baram. And Commander of the 210th Division - Brig. Gen. Amit Fisher.
During the tour, Gantz emphasized the security challenges prevalent in Israel's northern front. Most notably the Iranian presence in Syria, alongside any other developments in the Lebanese arena.
