Israeli occupation soldiers fired machine gun rounds on Tuesday at the main road linking the southern Lebanese border villages of Adeisseh and Kfar Killa.

An Israeli soldier patrolling the border with Lebanon opened fire on Tuesday at a mural painted on a wall at the entrance to a Lebanese village, the Lebanese army said.

“A soldier got out of his vehicle and deliberately fired at the wall bearing the inscriptions,” an army spokesman said, explaining that five bullets had hit the wall in the village of Aadaisseh, some 20 meters (yards) from the border.

An Israeli army spokeswoman claimed that “a soldier mistakenly fired his rifle” and that the military was “investigating the incident in order to prevent similar events in the future.”

A statement by the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) qualified the incident as “serious” and said a probe was underway. “This is a serious incident and a violation of Security Council Resolution 1701,” the statement said, referring to the UN resolution that ended the 2006 Israeli war against Lebanon. “UNIFIL has protested to the Israelis,” it added. The statement said at least two shots hit the wall.

Following Tuesday’s incident, Lebanese and UNIFIL troops stepped up their presence in the area.

Meanwhile, the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has confirmed that Hezbollah was not involved in recent rocket-launchings from South Lebanon into northern Israel. Speaking to the press on Monday at the UN headquarters in New York, Under Secretary General for Peacekeeping Operations Alain Le Roy confirmed that, based on UNIFIL investigations, Hezbollah had nothing to do with the rocket-launching incidents from South Lebanon into northern Israel over the past few months.
