Israeli media reported that an explosion took place near an Israeli patrol on the border with Lebanon, noting that the army is investigating the matter.
Sources had reported that an explosion was heard on a critical road, the settlement of Maskfam in the area adjacent to the town of Adaisse at dawn, and the nature and causes of the explosion have not yet been determined.
Al-Jazeera correspondent in Ramallah, Samir Abu Shamala, said that the Israeli patrol was carrying out its usual work, and that sources confirmed that he heard the sound of an explosion and the screams of Israeli soldiers, but the Israeli army did not confirm that there were injuries in the ranks of the patrol, and that the matter is under examination.
The border between Israel and Lebanon has been in a state of tension since last August, after the killing of a Hezbollah member in an Israeli raid in Syria.
Tensions rose last month after the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, as Tehran accuses Tel Aviv of being behind the assassination, as well as in light of the threats made by US President Donald Trump in the remainder of his term against Iran or its loyalists such as the Lebanese Hezbollah.
In recent months, Israeli land, air and sea violations were recorded, while the United Nations called for the utmost restraint.
