Israeli forces exchange gunfire on Lebanese border

Dec. 12, 2013 3:59 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 13, 2013 10:29 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces exchanged gunfire on the Lebanese-Israeli border on Thursday after shots were fired from the Lebanese side, Israel's army said.

"Fire was opened near the Lebanese-Israeli border in the northern Galilee. Israeli soldiers responded with fire to the source of the shooting," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

No injuries or damage was reported.

The source of the gunfire was most likely Lebanese poachers, the spokeswoman added.

On Saturday, a bomb was detonated along the border in the Golan Heights as patrolling Israeli troops passed by.

No casualties were reported from the explosion, which Israeli media said occurred on the Syrian-held side of the fence separating it from the Israeli-occupied zone.

Israel seized 460 square miles of the strategic plateau during the 1967 Six Day War and annexed it in 1981 in a move not recognized internationally. Syria has always insisted on its return as part of any peace treaty with Israel.
