Lebanese Intelligence Agents Hurt in Israeli Border Attack
Two Lebanese military intelligence agents were injured Tuesday in an Israeli attack in the southern border area of Rmeish, the Lebanese Army said.
“As a patrol from the Intelligence Directorate was inspecting a land lot between the points B36 and BP14, it came under an attack from a patrol belonging to the Israeli enemy,” the army said in a statement.
The Israeli force “hurled six smoke grenades, which resulted in suffocation injuries of two agents and a blaze that spread into the occupied territories,” the army added.
“A Lebanese Army patrol and members of the liaison unit of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the Civil Defense immediately arrived on the scene and worked on dousing the blaze on the Lebanese side of the border,” the military said.
