IDF repatriates Hezbollah-sent Lebanese man who infiltrated Israel
Mentally unstable Lebanese national was under constant surveillance before entering country, detained immediately after crossing border; man claims under interrogation he was threatened with forced hospitalization if he did not check border fence's permeability.

A mentally unstable Lebanese national was repatriated Tuesday after infiltrating Israel by crossing the border fence earlier in the week.

 

 

The suspect was under constant surveillance by Israeli security forces even before he crossed into Israel and was detained shortly thereafter.

The foreign national said during his interrogation that he was sent by two Hezbollah operatives—brothers Mehdi and Ali Shahrur of the Lebanese village of Habboûch—to check the border fence's condition.

The infiltrator further claimed the two had threatened him with forced hospitalization if he did not attempt to cross into Israel to ascertain the border fence's permeability. He was brought near the border fence on a bike ridden by Mehdi Shahrur, he added.

 

The IDF said that with this action, as in other actions, Hezbollah continued cynically abusing the Lebanese populace for its own ends in contravention of United Nations Security Council resolutions.
