An Israeli citizen crossed the border fence from Israeli territory to Lebanon in the Metula area today (Sunday) at noon.
The IDF spokesperson stated that the details of the incident are clear and that the incident is being investigated. The incident was discovered after a few hours, only when the Lebanese announced that the citizen was being investigated by the local security services.

There is a dialogue for his answer
As I recall, an Israeli crossed the border into Lebanon last week as well and so far he has not been returned.
The IDF said last week that the Israeli-Arab citizen's crossing of the fence was detected, and that "dialogue is taking place in the coordination and liaison channels" to return him to Israel.
According to a report on the Lebanese news website Al Jadi, he reached a village in the Tsur region and was detained for questioning by the intelligence mechanisms of the Lebanese army.
It was also reported that the Israeli lives in an Arab settlement in Israel.
Meanwhile, in March 2022 another Israeli citizen crossed the border fence towards Lebanese territory.
He stayed there for an hour, when IDF surveillance spotted him walking around the fence area. Later, IDF forces were called to the scene and returned him to Israel.
