IDF First Sergeant Shlomi Cohen, 31, of Afula, was killed on Sunday evening after being hit by sniper fire near Israel’s northern border with Lebanon.
The attack took place near Rosh Hanikra, in northwestern Israel, and was perpetrated by a soldier from the Lebanese army. A military source who spoke withArutz Sheva said that the Lebanese soldier fired at least seven bullets at an IDF vehicle.
There have been unconfirmed reports that the IDF fired at “suspicious figures” or at a Lebanese army post after the shooting, possibly causing casualties.
At around 1:00 a.m. Monday, Lebanon’s LBCI television said the IDF opened fire at the Lebanese General Security post at the Ras al-Naqoura border crossing.
