BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon's official news agency says a Lebanese army force has opened fire on a group of Israeli soldiers along the two countries' volatile border.

Arab satellite TV channels Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya reported that an Israeli soldier was killed in the shooting.

The National News Agency said the shooting occurred near the Naqoura border crossing but did not provide more details. Lebanese security officials did not immediately comment.

It was not clear why the Lebanese soldiers opened fire. The army has opened fire in the past after they said Israeli soldiers tried to infiltrate the border area.
