State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr handed over on Saturday to the International Committee of the Red Cross an Israeli man who crossed the technical fence with Israel in Ras al-Naqoura.

Saqr handed to the ICRC the man to return him to Israel after three days of interrogations, the state-run National News Agency reported.

On Wednesday, the 34-year-old man, who reportedly suffers from a mental illness, was interrogated by the Lebanese army intelligence in the presence of a translator and an officer from the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

A communique released by the Lebanese army said that the “army intelligence arrested an Israeli man after he crossed the technical fence and the Blue Line in the al-Labbouneh border area inside Lebanese territory.”

Israel and Lebanon are officially in a state of war and the travel of individuals between the two countries is prohibited.

that's one clever israeli! I would pretend insanity if I am in his shoes. I wonder how they figured out he was mentally ill, maybe he told them he thought he was crossing into switzerland
